For nearly 30-years now, Cindy has always been a constant companion to me — through thick and thin, good times and bad — she is my muse and my rock. She always thinks the best of people and has a positive outlook on life; we share the same sense of humor (everything from corny dad jokes to dark biting commentary); we have many of the same interests, but approach them from different directions — in short, she is the yin to my yang and vice versa.
We don’t go camping as much as we used to, and this past year in particular we were missing desperately needed nature fixes while I’ve been dealing with a lot of medical issues. However, we did get to see the Green River Lakes region of the Wind River Range in Wyoming last fall, and we were able to enjoy a hike while an early snow was gently drifting down around us — a slice of heaven for our kindred souls.
Here’s to many more such outings in the great outdoors!
