Lakeside Hike above 10,000ft

Afternoon sunlight filters through trees

and dances atop the lake like twinkling diamonds.

In the distance,

peaks above the tree line with their pockets of snow that stayed all summer

add to the beauty and feeling of remoteness

the trill and rat-a-tat-tat of birds create the soundtrack.

Sunset Views from the Sky Part One

When I fly, I always try to have a window seat. I usually sleep for part of the flight and it’s definitely the best place not to be disturbed. Looking out the window is the other reason, and the photos in this post validate my preference.

Celebrating Dad’s Birthday

My father has been gone 5 years. He died less than 2 weeks after his birthday so the time between the two dates has become a time where I think of him often.

The first year, my sister and I went to my favorite hot dog stand from childhood and ate Chicago dogs with fries in his honor.

This year, I was with my nephew and we happened to notice a shop that sold ice cream filled donuts! When the children were little, he had convinced them even if they were full, there was a separate “dessert pocket” in their stomachs so they could always join him for dessert. His favorite dessert was profiteroles and this was basically a giant version of one.
