This was all composed of music we had with us on the trip. Songs correlated to memorable moments or feelings along the way.

Pressure - Seattle Ramble On - Driving to Zion late at night, Sarah asleep beside me.
Good Mother - stopping at a lookout, brought to tears by the swelling music, our shadows on the ground.
Wolf Eyes - leaning against the car in Coral Reef, looking at the stars.

"Anne & Sarah - Crater Lake" is from a collection of recordings dad made of our calls back home. He had a toll-free number that went to voice mail for work, so we would call it and leave messages. This was one about the beautiful campsite we stayed at near Diamond Lake, in Oregon, just North of Crater Lake.
