On April 11, 2018, Mr. Pumpkin Head found himself in Arches National Park, admiring the Courthouse Towers on a cool, cloudy morning at 55 degrees. As an autumnal gourd with a curious streak—and not much of a morning person—he grumbled about being woken so early to explore. Yet, curiosity got the better of him, and he investigated a nearby rock. With a gentle roll, he revealed a lizard nestled beneath, blinking up in surprise.

"Well, look at that," thought Mr. Pumpkin Head, his carved grin beaming. The lizard, though caught off guard, stayed put, perhaps intrigued by its unusual visitor. Despite the cloudy skies, the moment felt bright and full of unexpected joy.

It was in these small, unexpected discoveries that Mr. Pumpkin Head found the essence of life’s joys, turning an ordinary day into something memorable.

In that quiet, early morning moment, surrounded by the grandeur of Arches National Park, Mr. Pumpkin Head felt a profound connection to the landscape.
