From the Yosemite area we drove to Mercey Hot Springs, this oasis becoming both our first and last stop on our year journey. September 29, 2012 – October 4, 2013. Twenty months since returning, without fanfare, I am completing the travelogue and photo journal of our Big Trip.
The trip remains fresh in my heart; revisiting the photos brings ongoing pleasure. The impact of the open space, the timeless days and the endless, varied beauty lingers within. Insights from this year-long retreat on the road are still unfolding. I recommend a trip like this to anyone. It may seem impossible to arrange, to set aside one’s ordinary life for year, but once the intention is set the impossible sometimes happen.
