How has summer already come and gone? It seems like it passes too quickly. September is here and the brisk mornings of Fall are just around the corner.

And, since it is already September, I can’t help but think back over what my summer was like. The memories I made. The adventures I had. The places I saw. Overall, I would rank this summer into my top five favorite summers of all time. Another summer that I would put in my top five is last summer. Last summer Emiline and I took our grand road trip to New England.

12 Days • 14 States • 3,053 Miles Driven • 25 Appalachian Trail Miles Hiked • 4 Lighthouses Visited • 1 Rock Launched At Canada – with a slingshot

This was one of the four lighthouses we say in those 12 days. When I initially posted an image of it to the Instagram, I wrote:

Marshall Point Lighthouse • 2013 Edition | I photographed this lighthouse at sunset in October of 2004. I’d been exploring the coast of Maine with my wonderful guide @longwinterfarm and our day happened to end here. It was a gorgeous sunset. The weather today was much different, but the lighthouse was exactly the same. It has seen little change since it was constructed in 1857. And, yes, this is the one that Tom Hanks runs to in Forrest Gump. #goforthgonorth #coastofmaine #vacationland #lighthousessavelives #runforrestrun #vscocam

So, this month’s wallpaper is in honor of Forrest Gump, which was released in 1994. It’s crazy to think that movie is 20 years old!
