I Am Most Alive Among The Tall Trees

    A few years back I flew out to Oregon to meet up with my friend Jenn. It was my first time on the west coast. I loved my time in Oregon but when my friend and I went north to visit Forks, WA (Twi-hard through and through) I fell in love with everything I saw. The trees, the moss, the water, the mountains, the roads, the trails, the driftwood, everything! I have always thought that the water calls to me. And I think it does. I feel a peace that is hard to explain when I am near a body of water. I enjoy our mountains and trees but those feelings are nothing compared to how I felt near the woods in Washington. Something about them is just different. I want to go back and hike, and camp, and just sit and listen.
     There are a few places I really want to visit but no place that I really see myself moving to (if I was to move from where I am now) except Washington. I have hopes and dreams of moving there even if it is only for a year or a season. I would do with a short yearly trip. I haven't been back but I feel the tug of my heart every time I think about it.

     Is there any place you want to move to? Is there any place that calls to you like the water and these mountains call to me? Let me know!
