It's a fall day in 2006. This woman I met only six months ago rides along the trail with me. The shadow of the gorge walls releases us as we following the bend of the stream. The sunlight on her steaming hair, the quiet grinding of our tires a constant thread for the brook to play its notes around, I am elated! You see, this is the day before we eloped. This moment in time will echo in my soul forever.
