The Inspiration of the Sawtooths

Friday, November 24th, 2017

Walking through the trails in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area gives me such an amazing feeling. It is like I am floating in the clouds, but I am on a rugged, partially maintained, narrow trail. I have dirt under my nails, fresh mountain water in my Nalgene, and a mind that is finally at rest. My only thoughts are, “How far can I push myself today?” The bright blue skies matched with the clear blue waters inspires me to go to places I have never been before. However, this inspiration is not only for me, but it is for all of us who travel far and wide, just to have a piece of the Sawtooths.
