Still Dreaming

Mount Zirkel Wilderness, CO

Standing there, on the edge of the water, a perfect mirror in its stillness, it was easy to imagine I was actually asleep back in my tent, sleepwalking through a dream world. Lucky for me, I was awake. I don't know about you guys, but I'm prone to living in my mind. I find it easy to get lost in thought, memories, and daydreams, to forget about the real world. It's a healthy reminder, then, when I wander into moments like these that remind me: what is already out there on Earth is a thousand times more magical, more fascinating, and more real than any daydream.

Of course, this is assuming that reality isn't a dream itself.
