From the yeasty warmth of freshly baked bread to the clean, summery haze of lavender flowers, we all have favorite smells we find particularly comforting. What’s yours?
Sometime in my past I was headed west on US 40 and anxious to reach home. By the time I reached eastern Utah was weary of the perpetual odor of sage, greasewood, and desert sand.

Later, I awoke to a full moon silhouetting a stand of trees. When I opened the car door I was greeted by the welcome scent of friendly pines.
