Climbed up to the top
snow gently falling … peaceful
Charlie led the way.
Sadness mixes with anger
how do we live in a world
where the unfathomable happens?
It’s not possible to avoid the news.
My choice is to focus on the beauty,
the beauty that surrounds me.
If only nature could impact others
in the ways it does me.
Late October morn
Two pups, one friend, perfect views
happy weekend hike
Living in the forest, we have a lot of animals passing through the yard, especially at this time of year. A group of deer were running through and the last one in line stopped to pose for this picture.
A short film of photos and clips of the moon. I’m working with iMovie to practice when I make my book trailer. If you’re experienced in this, feel free to comment. I’m looking for advice.
clouds mingle with sun
to paint new and glorious,
Friday morning, before the 70 degree weekend melted most of the snow, Charlie and I joined 2 canine and 1 human friend for a snowy hike.
It was a fun challenge with sunny skies and new dog in the mix. Charlie and Laine, the Springer Spaniel, ran and chased their usual dance, tiring each other out. Cleo, who seemed to want no part of their chaos, aligned herself with the humans.
These photos are from a rest stop near the end of our hike. As you can see, Charlie’s puppy energy was still in high gear and Laine isn’t the least bit tired.
I remember a John Belushi fish-out-of-water movie from the 1980s named Continental Divide. It may have been my first exposure to the beauty that is Colorado.
This exquisite view, snow capped peaks above tree line is something I appreciate every time I see it.
