Irish Sunrise

Being of Irish decent I can attest to waking up early in the morning feeling foggy and odd.  This is typically the result of another proud Irish tradition of strong beer and shenanigans.  I was backpacking in the Irish Wilderness when I awoke to this magnificent scene on the river.  This was a beautiful sight and probably one of my favorite backpacking moments of all time.

Lake Lilies

Springfield lake may not be the most scenic lake in the world but it’s a good place for a quick retreat from the city.  I went kayaking there and found some beautiful water lilies.
