White Canyon Wilderness Wander

I spent a lazy Sunday wandering through White Canyon Wilderness, a hidden heaven not too far from Phoenix. No goal. No fitness hike. Just a lot of puffy clouds, silence, and the chance to soak in another beautiful view.

The best part of slowing down is taking the time to notice what you don’t when you are keeping pace on a long hike.

Small flowers, delicate blades of native grass, unusual markings etched among rock, moss, and lichen, a hidden petroglyph…these are the findings that can only emerge into vision in idleness.

I am taking the time to find God in small things. Her beauty is in the intricacies and eloquence of the understated and unnoticed.
