“Have you ever had a defining moment in life….when time stands still, when nothing seems to matter…it’s just you and God. That is exactly how I felt at this moment. In awe of God’s beauty and grandness! This was a very overwhelming part of my walk in the canyon and something I will cherish forever.” This is when she was about 2 miles away from being finished and she is looking out way across the canyon at where she first started.
