I guess this post is really about pioneerism.
Back in June, I was lucky enough to take a trip to Denver for a week. I've spent time in every state on the east coast, but this was my first time going west.
While I'm not a huge 'outdoorsy' type, I have a very strong sense of pioneerism. I loved it and could not get over the absolute natural beauty.

By going there, I feel that I've seen some of the beauty that makes our country unique. I feel like I'm doing my patriotic part. I cannot wait to get back out there again. There is not enough time in this life to see all the beauty that can be found there.

Second is a poem by Walt Whitman. This recording of it is so good, but so is reading it yourself. :)
