Sunsets Solve 9/10 Problems

Tuesday, August 04, 2015


I really like words. I know that's fairly obvious from my often rambly blog posts, so this revelation is hardly surprsing. That being said, as much as I love words, I do believe that a picture is worth a thousand words. So today I'm going to let the pictures talk more than I do.


After hiking Crabtree Falls, we somehow got a bit lost while driving in the mountains. There wasn't any good cell phone signal, and we were really hungry, but it could get a lot worse than a full tank of gas and a setting sun in the mountains.

That being said, roadtrips aren't always the picture-perfect experience. Sometimes you get car sick or lost or find out that Siri isn't 100% accurate. Sometimes the car is too cramped or too hot or too cold. Sometimes your brother wants to play really loud rap music while you want to take a nap or you want to sing along to Ben Howard at the top of your lungs which annoys the rest of your family for some odd and unknown reason.

But other times, you're driving on a windy road surrounded by endless mountains while the sun slowly sinks in the sky. And the sky is a mix of blues and pinks and whites, and everything seems okay.

By no means are roadtrips perfect. Contrary to what the internet says, roadtrips won't solve all your problems. But when you're watching the sunset through the car window as trees fly by, you realize that they're a really good place to start.

3 Happy Thoughts

  1. Loving the honesty, its so relatable (especially the car sickness and belting out Ben Howard lyrics!) With social media these days its easy to get lost in the dream of an adventure, and forget the reality. But I think the reality is what makes it that much sweeter, and makes pictures of sunsets, as beautiful as yours, that much more special. As always I enjoy reading your posts!
