When you’re on the trail, unplugged from civilization and completely remote, your appreciation of the classical elements – earth, air, water and fire – becomes heightened.  Whether it be huddled around a campfire, waiting for thunder storm to pass, listening to rushing wind and soothing streams, or taking in a sunset transformed by smoke from a nearby wildfire, the experience is unique each time we step foot on the trail.
