I got to ring out 2018 with a final Shoestring Adventures trip in the Grand Canyon. This time around, the Canyon reminded me that most things in life are temporary- pain, joy, fear, hurt, love. We experienced 4 seasons worth of weather in 3 days, and just when I thought it would stay rainy or cold or cloudy, the weather shifted and offered something new. So it goes with our many seasons in life. I wrote more about our adventure on the Shoestring blog, which you can read here.
