Laugh for Joy

Do you laugh for joy? Not because something is funny, but out of startled wonder? Like you are hiking the short trail from Highway 89 to Horseshoe Bend Overlook, and you slog through the sand up this hill. You are wondering why they routed the trail up the only hill on the way to the canyon rim, and you crest the top of the hill and you are on the highest spot 360 degrees for many miles. The panorama hits you and you throw back your head and laugh. I do that. It's my favorite laugh.

I don't know if I laugh for joy or not, but I do know the experience.

The West really is breathtaking in its landscapes.

On those rare occasions in autumn when I find myself alone on the beach, waves crashing, the lake so vast and beautiful, the air so crisp, and almost clean...I laugh like that.
