About halfway into our drive we pulled off to the side of the road behind our friend Joel. He told us to get out of the car and grab our water bottles because he wanted to show us something. Out we hopped not having a clue what we were about to see. We walked about 10 feet from the side of the road and there it was: an actual mountain spring. For real. I opened my water bottled and filled it up to take a drink. It was better than any bottle of water I've purchased in my life. This was nature's best and so amazing.
I know sipping water doesn't seem like it should be a big deal. But I think the sheer magnitude of it's purity, the mountains and river surrounding us and the likelihood that I would ever get to do something like that again hit me. Nature is pretty cool and I have so enjoyed spending so much time outside with my family lately. For all of this, I am thankful!
