Last year at this time I was nearing the tail end of a solo adventure. Just me and the Volvo, rolling from Los Angeles to Colorado. The intention of this trip was to reconnect, to immerse myself in nature, get still and “to find some fall”. It was a spectacular two weeks of hiking through fallen leaves, exploring hidden mountain towns, reading and relaxing in front of cozy fires all while surrounded by snow-capped Rockies. Little did I know that a year later I would be living in another such beautiful corner of the country that would gift me the same experience.
