  • I remember downloading these beautiful pictures Jed had taken while hiking the Colorado Trail by himself for over 30 days. Wanting a glimpse into the piece of mind he had found out there. You could see it in his eyes when he contented by what he learned.
    The following weekend when I received the news that he had been killed riding his motorcycle, I was shattered........We hadn't seen enough of this enlightened person before he moved on.
