This was a memorable day of hiking through Indian Canyons with a group of wonderful women, including Nancy (and my wonderful assistant Thomas too!). We hiked, breathed in the clean air and laughed our way along the trails, stopping here and there to do jumping photos. I love this one of Nancy, effortlessly suspended in the air.
