College was difficult for Scott MacEachern. He struggled with questions about who he was, what he believed, and what he wanted to do. A turning point came on a visit to Colorado during spring break. The first time he saw the Rocky Mountains, "something internally just sort of clicked." After graduating from college, he finally took the leap and moved to the Rockies. He bought a truck for the trip and, with neither a specific destination nor a plan, he headed out West. Scott realizes that transitions will always be hard, but he remains optimistic that "you can come out the other side."
