135: A walk in the RockiesPosted: February 4, 2011
This is a placeholder. A time for me to get caught up with myself, life, the universe, and everything. But you can also think of it as a break from winter. A chance to get away, and go back to August of 2010.
Walk along the path, surrounded by mountains. The sun is warm. The air is fresh and clean, being carried in by a steady breeze. The grasses are dotted with spots of color, wildflowers in bloom. Up the path a ways is a bench. Have a seat and watch as the clear, shallow, chilly waters of the Colorado River flow by, reflections of the trees and mountains rippling on top. If you sit long enough and still enough, perhaps elk will stop by. Mothers with their babies. Or a lone stag with large antlers.
Just relax. Enjoy the views, the scents, the sounds, the sensations, and the flowers.
