135: A walk in the Rockies

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.

(Elk.  Rocky Mountain National Park.  Colorado.)

Just relax.  Enjoy the views, the scents, the sounds, the sensations, and the flowers.

  1. Your photos are breathtaking! Thanks for sharing them.

  2. I like looking either backwards or perhaps forward as I like to view it. Something to look forward to. I posted my daisy photo on Facebook a couple of days ago to remind myself of the wonderful white to come. Preview of coming attractions. It’s a nice break. Lovely photos, as usual Robin.

    Oh, SUCH a needed break from winter! I would LOVE to go running down that path, spin until I am euphoric and then fall into that green, green grass while the sun caresses my face!
