Inspired by a recent day trip to Oklahoma's Red Rock Canyon, this piece tells the tale of a short excursion to a small-scale tourism spot. With likewise light mood and low stakes, the chamber orchestra bounces its way to a more lyrical middle section before returning from whence it came in similar fashion. Anyone who's ever spontaneously whisked off to a tranquil nature spot can probably relate!

Dedicated to my mother.
