A Meaningful Journey

Rugged, challenging, beautiful…it’s no walk in the woods

Along the rugged journey of life you will experience uphill battles, exhilarating descents, times when the destination is completely out of sight, where the path you’re on dead-ends, where you cruise through good fortune, and where you collapse into exhaustion and hopelessness.
