DAY 16/30 Exactly 14 days (2 weeks) until we part ways with our sweet Austin town of 20 years. Today we began to geek 🤓 out & loosely plan our first 2 months. WORD: FUTURIZING ~ May we walk in the now while being planful, without obsessing. May we remain unattached to the outcome. May we expect nothing & appreciate everything.

I have always loved the desert. One sits down on a desert sand dune, sees nothing, hears nothing. Yet through the silence something throbs, and gleams... Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
The Window trail ends at the top of a waterfall that only runs during extreme flash flooding. Water polished granite lines the path, making it easy to slip over the edge to the Chihuahuan desert 220ft below. Expansive views of the desert greet you. #womenwhohike
One week ago, we got up with the sunrise and had Santa Elena Canyon all to ourselves! The age of the earth and the power of water is undeniable at this spot. Over millions of years, the Rio Grande has snaked its way through layers of rock, forming the seven-mile canyon. Mexico (and grazing goats) on the left, U.S. on the right. An absolutely incredible sight and a must-see for anyone wanting to feel really, really tiny. #santaelenacanyon
