Niagara Gorge


I was deep into my pre-clinical courses as a first-year medical student and struggling to carve out time for the other things I loved in this world, like hiking. This image was taken on a hike on one chilly October day when I finally managed to get away and hike a local trail. It was a glorious experience to reconnect with nature after so many months of staring at my computer and the four walls of my bedroom. This image always instills a sense of magnificence within me every time I come across it and reminds me of how important and possible it is to set time aside for the things that make our souls happy and reset.
