My brother and I gazed at a sunset from a rocky perch high atop Boulder Pass in Glacier National Park. A ball of orange slipped behind the jagged peaks way out there somewhere toward Japan. We sat there dazzled, not uttering a word as the clouds turned into purple islands in a sea of molten lava.
We were doing something we felt passionate about. It took effort to haul our packs up the steep trail, yet we soaked in every moment like a gift. That sunset wasn’t an in-your-face adrenalin rush, but something in the moment, quiet and deep.
