Beautiful and inspirational photos! Thank you for sharing them. I ache to see those areas for myself.
Your photos make me want to ditch the house, ditch the car, have a gigantic yard sale to unload all my stuff, and be a modern-day nomad, backpacking all the trails I've ever dreamed of backpacking! I should do it now, while my faculties and my body are still intact (well, pretty much intact! LOL)!
