Let's Go

I'm missing you, Silver Moonbeam!

I'm missing you, White~breasted Nuthatch, Woodpecker, Owl and Raven!

See you soon, The Roosevelt, the Rawah Wilderness, The Cache La Poudre River!

I hope you're well, Peaches the black bear, the families of bighorn sheep, moose, the elk, deer and bobcats!

I'm stuffing my weekender bag with long johns, mittens, wool socks and hats, fleece tops and high boots. I've got extra blankets tucked under my arm and a good book I can't wait to finish.

The bikes will go up on the racks and I'll fill the kitty bowls to the brim.

Colorado, here we come. We've neglected you this summer. Blame it on The Horses.

It's time.

And it's always better in the mountains.

    1. It's a wonderful refuge, this place of ours. A special mountain, the warmth of the locals, the quiet of the woods. Thank you for stopping by. I need to see what you're up to!

    1. I know! We were actually thinking of taking a jaunt to Boulder to listen to the buskers on Pearl and go thrifting. Another day, another time and we will go over our horse plans. ;)
      Meanwhile, have a great trip to the central coast. Ah, breathe it in, J.

      I bet I'll be wishing for a campfire story while we stare at the dancing flames around the fire ring. You story teller, you. :)
