Leaving a touchstone

I'm leaving in the morning to go to the mountains for one last quick trip.  I'm having to watch my funds right now, so I'm only going for one night.  Fortunately I was able to cash in on some air miles points for a (reputable) motel gift card, so I only have to pay for food and gas.  

I'm excited about going because, as you all know, I love going to the Canadian Rockies more than I can even properly express.  LOVE IT!!!

But I'm also sad.  This is my last trip there until... who knows when.  I feel like I'm going to say good-bye to an old, dear friend without knowing when I'll be able to see them again.  It brings tears to my eyes just typing this, just as I cry a little every time I think about being there for the last time for a long time.  Maybe ever, although I certainly hope not.

I kind of feel like the mountains have been a touchstone for the journey that my life has taken over the last several years.  It's a special place anyway, but it means so much to me personally.  It's hard to leave it behind.
