I have always been the type that doesn't cry during goodbyes and I happily packed up to move across the country about 5 years ago, without looking back. I also value my alone time, personal space, and the days when I don't really interact with other people.

I left Copper Mountain fulfilled, stretched both physically and mentally, and honestly quite eager to be on my own. It was beautiful to share Wanderlust with so many like-minded people, but part of this journey was to spend some time alone, and I needed to get on that. The scenery changed as I left the Rockies and drove into the desert. It was spectacular.  Rock formations jutted out...
