August Photo of the Month

Written by Hank Martin in The Backpack

This month's top photo comes from a user submission on our website, and sums up what we're after here at Breaking Trail.  Life is in moments like the one below, which was snapped in Alaska.  Life hangs in sunrises and sunsets, extraordinary events that we, as humble human beings, are lucky enough to be a part of.  It is moments like these that elevate our lives out of the hum-drum of the daily grind and make us believe that there is always more to life than what we have right now.  This is the reward for making an effort to break new trails.

Waking up early for work isn't all bad, especially when you have views like this to get you going in the morning.  No cup of coffee can get your heart rate up like seeing the sun rise from behind mountain peaks as an early morning cloud cover hangs in the air.  The quietly spinning turbines look upon that same sunrise too, and prove that nature and technology can coexist.  Actually, our human survival depends on it, for what good is technology if it gives us our lives but takes away the beauty of living.  Vice versa, what good is unparalleled beauty like this if we cannot sustain ourselves as humans?
