Turtle Rock

When I moved to Colorado, everyone in the neighborhood called this peak Turtle Rock.

I’ve climbed to the top many times because it’s so close to my house.

It’s where we watched the solar eclipse.

It’s the first climb I took Charlie on back when I could easily pick him up, before he could leap over any obstacle.

It’s where I’ve seen some magnificent sunsets.

It affords 360 views that include the continental divide and most recently dozens of elk.

But it wasn’t until this summer, when I looked at it from this angle, that I understood why it’s called Turtle Rock.

I'm a reading specialist from Chicago, now living in the beauty of the Roosevelt National Forest in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. My first book "Aliana Reaches for the Moon" is about a creative, curious, kind and messy girl who loves science and her very patient parents. I'm currently writing a YA novel about a family broken apart by a secret and a misunderstanding. Future books in the Aliana series will include dealing with forest fires, learning about clouds and animal habitats.
