New Directions

Highway 1 West bound.
Highway 1 West bound.

 

Restless, we escaped our prairie city and drove into the night, through blinding night fog and across borders. When the sun rose upon us we were under the living sky and climbing the foothills with leaps and bounds. That’s when the vibrations began….
Foreboding and treacherous, the hills threatened to claim our noble stead, and after a long battle through the highest plateaus of the great continental divide, we descended upon the Pacific coast, across the strait and into the true Canadian promise land.
Twisting and turning through the gentle rain forest, we arrived at the western edge of the country and were awarded for our perseverance with the beautiful naked body of mother earth herself. Silent observance as her waves crashed into the rocks in perfect symphony.
