Skier | Twisp, WA | 2011

Don’t we mostly follow in someone else’s tracks? Trails, sidewalks, stairways, aisles, hallways, highways, even sky routes at 30,000 feet? The local college pours concrete paths on the diagonals students use as shortcuts to classes. Last week, I felt a tingle of excitement as I stepped off one path onto untrodden lawn. Trailblazer.
