While hiking in UT, in the red sand in between the mighty rocks and canyons, I've noticed small plants and flowers blooming. I've never witnessed Spring so slowly and closely come alive before. Being in nature so consistently, you start noticing tiny things around you.
Many times while hiking, solo and while w/ others, the song titled "Enjoy the Silence" pops into my mind, and I have been trying to do so.
In the silence, you discover a new world of sounds.
My two constant scents consisted of dirt and smoke (camp fire of course). Have not done many fires, but the smell lingers in my clothes. And now while being on the boat almost every day, I feel salty :)
