lauren & hunter : wenatchee national forest

it rained and then it sleeted. crystal webbed flecks of ice. we had heavy grey clouds and then warm dewy sunshine. and then the full grey clouds returned followed by melting sun once more.

it started with hunter giving lauren a ring she hadn't yet seen. shaking hands from cold and nerves. and then running and driving and romping all over and through the mountains and woods. 

and as we drove down the mountain through the clouds and snow, i felt unending gratitude. in the fullest most overwhelming sense.
