Sometimes the sky above the nearby peaks is so beautiful that you just have to stop and take it in.
I took these photos at the beginning of the month when things in Boulder were snow covered, the sun was shining, and the reflections were blinding.
Tonight on the way home, I was thinking how much I love the longer days and wondered if I’d see a sunset. The view as I reach the top of the steep road home is often noteworthy. The paved road ends and the majority of the last two miles is downhill. Today I pulled over to take these photos. Unfiltered, you can see the snow on the peaks in the distance as the sun illuminates the clouds. Perfect timing.
Here are the countdown illustrations from the past two weeks.
I hope you want to buy this book for the children in your life or for a gift if you don’t have children.
It’s also helpful if you ask your library to buy the book so that many readers can have access to it.
And reviews online (Amazon, Goodreads) make an important difference for new books.
