I know, what a silly title for a post…obviously there is more than one person that lives in the state of Idaho…who is this crazy lady anyhow?! But truly, that is how I feel when I am out jaunting around in Idaho’s forever landscape. I had this thought as I was on my way home from a backyard hike last night. As much as I sometimes wish I could firmly put roots down in one location, build a home, and a community of people…I think I am destined to living this nomadic life of mine. But, this wandering life has led me to so many amazing communities of people and has awarded me so many incredible opportunities to discover, explore and connect with countless amazing places. Out of all the places I have visited though, I’ve never felt so entirely alone and so completely alive as when I am out experiencing Idaho’s vast and wild landscape. These lands echo with story of bone and stardust, of life and re-birth, and the hard work of grit glittered with grace. Each time I venture out my back door I am completely overwhelmed by the incredible offerings of this sage sloped, creek fed and evergreen dotted paradise.
Idaho, population one.
