not so local

I’ve gone farther to be surprised but it’s nice to know I can find new things relatively close to home. I never knew I could find natural canyons less than two hours away from where I live. It was amazing to see these rock formations and have the place almost to myself during my mid-week excursion westward. I’m used to the urban canyons of Chicago but it was nice to experience something so much more natural.
