Grayson Highlands State Park

It was a craving that needed to be fulfilled. I yearned for solitude in nature. Maybe I wanted to feel centered or possibly connected? Hard to explain that gut feeling of wanting time to yourself in wilderness. It's a place where you can take a deep breath and step away from expectations while feeling surrounded by something so powerful yet peaceful. 

To feed this desire, last week I packed up the car with my camping gear (and my new Fuji X-T20) and headed to Grayson Highlands State Park in Virginia. I was woman alone in nature feeling free. Sounds weird to admit, but those wild ponies are medicine for the soul!!!

Now, thinking maybe I can eeek out another solo trip in August possibly to a National Park? My wheels are turning!!! ;)
