This week’s photo challenge is ‘Renewal’….this one was tough for me as I always want to resort to the sunset or something simple…I have loads of those photos! After quite a bit of thought, I decided to focus on what renews my spirit. For me personally it is anything and everything outdoors, primarily, any activity that can be done in or near the mountains. The photo below was taken on a backpacking trip in Denali last summer – this is Mt. McKinley. Many people travel to Alaska to see this majestic mountain and leave disappointed because of bad weather or cloud cover – we got lucky that day!
