Sunsets are proof that endings can often be beautiful, too. — Beau Taplin
Yellowstone National Park
Have you ever seen National Geographic photographs of the Namibian landscapes? It looks just like a painting, which is why it’s been so popular on the internet. Well, the Angel Terrace in Yellowstone was just like it. I stared in silence as I tried to digest just how incredible this sight was under the sun.
A real life painting…
These terraces sat high among the mountains. The landscape looked so pretty from here.
How did we ever get so lucky? To walk this earth so freely…to live it and breathe it and admire it and love it…
If you ever wondered why it was named Yellowstone, stepping into its canyon will answer your question.
The walls of the canyon were prehistoric. Look at these patterns of colors… (like the skin of a turtle!)
As the day was ending, we made our way back to Midway Geyser Basin for sunset.
Right before the sun fell asleep, the sky exploded into gold. As did my heart.
I’ve left pieces of my heart scattered in so many different places. Endings don’t feel better with time. I always have a sense of sadness and happiness all at the same time — sad that I’m leaving, but so very happy to have lived each moment.
I had never seen earth breathe the way it did in Yellowstone. I’m not sure I ever will…
