While I was on a hike with friends over the weekend, I noticed a small mushroom sticking out of the dirt. It triggered a memory.

When I lived in Utah, my friend Wendy and I hiked together all the time. One day we were hiking in a dry wash, surrounded by high canyon walls. I was looking at the ground, hoping to find pieces of petrified wood. She was looking up at the cliffs and trees.
