Road Trip

In 2013, I took my dream trip and drove across the United States by myself (NC to Idaho and back). After leaving Glacier National Park, I stumbled in on this amazing scene which I never will forget. Seemingly out of nowhere was this beautiful herd of horses being rounded up by this white truck and the little dog at the front. I drove a bit ahead them, stopped, and gathered my camera in hopes of capturing the scene. Everything went so fast. I will never forget this sight, the smell of fresh Montana air, the sounds of the honking truck, the barking dog, and the hoofbeats, and the feel of the dust coming upon me. It remains one of the most surreal and magical moments of my life.
