she had never seen
so many variations of white,
she thought to herself
as the suv moved north
through the rugged terrain.

mountains pressed in
on every side and presented
her with awesome views
of sheer beauty
and snow
and ice.

"oh, it's so beautiful," she breathed,
pointing out frost covered pine trees,
twinkling in late afternoon sunlight,
and signs warning of moose.

and with each mile that passed,
she felt her heart join the rhythm
of this wild frontier and she grinned
because she finally felt "home" again
out here in the middle of nowhere.
