To celebrate Philip joining the practice of Austin Retina Associates in Texas as a retina surgeon (after eleven years of medical training!), we took a family trip to the challenging Wind River Range of Wyoming right before he started the job of his dreams!
Spiritual Gangsta that I am, I set up meditation camp in a tiny log cabin in Pinedale, and drove Porter and Philip to their trailhead at Elkhart Park, where they commenced a week of backpacking, first into a blizzard.
It was so windy in the Winds that Porter had to hang onto his seventh chakra!
For the rest of the week, with Island Lake as basecamp (one-pound green tent in the center below), they sloshed all night on melting snow and hiked all day, to Titcomb Basin, Upper Jean Lake, and other highly inaccessible destinations.
Amber and I meditated, practiced yoga, and sent good vibes toward the Winds.
May you all traverse your own mountains inner and outer for the benefit of all beings.
