We hiked 20 miles a day up and down the steep mountains of California, Oregon and Washington; nearly died of thirst in the Mojave; kicked steps up icy slopes in the High Sierra; tried not to drown fording rapids; encountered a mountain lion and stumbled through lava fields and boulders as well as the landscape of our ever-shifting feelings.

A new view of coming home

A trip to Greenland was only the start of a life-changing summer for Lyons' Lizzy Scully

A frigid wolf chase

Tracking wolves by dogsled in Saskatchewan

By James Dziezynski
