Early fall 2016, I took this while hiking near the Vermillion River near Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.
I heard the roar of a million leaves. There were tracks in the dirt. I was all alone but I knew that something had been here before me. I walked for hours and all I heard was the wind. Through the trees, I saw a bird soaring through the sky. I thought about death. Could he see me? Could he sense my anticipation?
I kicked my feet up on the banks of a river. On the rocks, I smoked a cigarette. I contemplated the weight of my existence. The river didn’t give a shit about me. There were waves stretching back across time and space. I thought about life. How far can we see? Is there meaning in meaningless things?
Sometimes when you adventure, you need to adventure like a captain. Hiking down train tracks, my friend and I found ourselves following the banks of a river. We walked for hours. Eventually we decided to stop and eat lunch. I got a fire going while my friend got lunch started on the camping stove.
But, our campfire luncheon wouldn’t be complete without a sip or two with the captain!
Get out there and find yourself an adventure.

An hour after setting off up a mountain at warp speed our hike came to an end with me half sighing-half saying: “honey, I’m tired” as I flopped down on a rock and started stuffing Pringles in my face, and without missing a beat, him replying: “honey, this was your idea.”

Sitting by the campfire, sipping on Havana Club, it seems so relaxing but what you dont see is the 30 kilometers that I had to walk with 35 pound bag on my back. Still, well worth it!
