Beauty in Erosion

Nature, Photography / Tuesday, June 30th, 2015

Here are a few more beautiful pictures my awesome husband took from our Colorado vacation. We drove down to the Great Sand Dunes National Park and camped out one night, climbed the dunes with 4 adults, 9 kids, and 2 dogs, and lived to tell about it.

It was really the highlight of our trip and I’m so glad we got to go. You wouldn’t think piles of sand would be all that cool but there was something just…awesome about it.

Maybe it was how little it made me feel, or the colors – my favorite color schemes!

Maybe it was just marveling in the fact that I was ingrained in the after-life of a time now gone.

While I was climbing the dunes, my feet sinking into the sand with each step, I felt like there was probably some huge life lesson God might be trying to show me, an analogy of erosion and beauty. I know there’s a lesson, it’s just on the tip of my mind but I haven’t quite seen the whole picture yet. It’s still loading.

Something about how throughout the history of creation, everything has constantly evolved from one thing to another.

There used to be a beautiful lake where we climbed up those sand dunes. I imagined a time-lapse video of how the terrain had changed over thousands of years due to erosion – wind, rain, and other natural elements.

One beauty of nature replaced with another.

I guess it just goes to show that even the world as we know it now will pass away and erode by the natural forces of the constantly changing world. We can’t see it now but over time, something new and beautiful in it’s own way will develop once again.

For now, I’ll soak in the beauty that exists where I am right now.

Something like that anyway.

Ok, enough talk, I’ll be quiet now and let you enjoy these pictures.
