A Restoration of My Soul!

For me, this trip was a restoration of my soul. I know that sounds overblown and hyperbolic, but I have lost a lot in the last two years, and my spirit was battered and bruised. I needed some Nature, some God, and some good people to hang out with. Mostly nature!!
     The first time I saw that this trip was happening, I got chills, tears came to my eyes, and I knew in my soul I had to take this trip. No matter what.
