To everyone who's lost someone they love
Long before it was their time
You feel like the days you had were not enough
When you said goodbye
There is hope for the helpless
Rest for the weary
And love for the broken heart
And there is grace and forgiveness
Mercy and healing
He’ll meet you wherever you are
We thought we were so clever planning a trip to warm and sunny Sedona, AZ for the MLK holiday weekend. Why not?! Sure it’s a long 10 hour drive, but if we also took Friday off, we’d have a four day weekend to drive down, set up camp, and explore some of the awesome hikes in the area.
Yeahhhh... I think every tourist and snowbird from here to the east coast had the same idea. On top of that, we came to find out that the $5 a day Red Rock Pass for trailhead access was not required for the entire holiday weekend.
This all meant that parking at trailheads was impossible, trails were congested, campgrounds were fully booked, and the whole place was just a madhouse.
Feeling a little defeated, we boogied to the outskirts of town. After a long drive down a dirt forest service road, we found a nice secluded spot to set up camp and relax in the warm sunshine. Luckily, this turned out to be just what the three of us needed.
Sometimes the plan takes a big dumb belly flop, but that’s no reason to not still find a way to enjoy the beauty of the Southwest desert!
I think this @mercedesbenz shoots was one of my favorites of 2017. We had total creative freedom, got to go on an adventure and had a global platform to showcase the work after. What more could you ask for!?! Looking forward to more gigs like this in 2018!!
