Beauty Knows No Borders

Banff National Park | Alberta, Canada

This past summer I had the great pleasure of spending it entirely with my son.  Toward the end of our time together we drove from our home in Oregon all the way up to Alaska on the Can-Am (Canadian-American) highway. After a week long back country stint in Denali I put him on the redeye flight home as school started the next morning.  I wouldn’t trade our time together for anything - it was a blast.

On the drive back home from Alaska I took my time going through Canada. I wasn’t in my home country anymore, I was the foreigner and I was about to have an epiphany.  There are amazing nature sights to behold there - everywhere.

The first snowfall of the season had just dusted the mountains.  I starred in awe as the clouds parted and a beam of light touched the surface of this stunning mountain lake and illuminated the entire valley.

Man’s pitiful attempt to place arbitrary lines upon the surface of the earth to retain what they believe to be ‘theirs’, and call them “borders”, yields because beauty knows nothing about that, beauty knows no borders.

See Ya On the Trail!
