I've always loved the mountains. To me, the mountains mean peace, spirituality, and being closer to God. This is a little embarrassing, but I have been known to get a little emotional on our drives up the canyon. Sometimes I am just overwhelmed by the majesty of the mountains, and overcome with amazement of the beauty God has put right in front of our eyes.
Another reason I love escaping to the mountains, and I've told Casey this before, is because that's where I fell in love with Casey. Sorry for getting all mushy gushy, but it's true! When we were dating one of our favorite things to do was go on Sunday drives up the canyon, or go explore together. We had so many long walks and talks that brought us closer together, and each time I fell harder and harder for him. Every time we go back I feel more in love than ever.
