Mountain girl, you're not getting any younger....


First hike of the season and my knees sure know it.  But when THIS is what's available to you just steps from your front porch....well, you've gotta get out and enjoy it.  

It was a gorgeous day.  Gorgeous.  Sun shining, blue skies, cool breeze.  Perfect for hiking in some light pants and a tank.  A nice little two hour hike to some unbelievable scenery.  Days like this kind-of make all the stress of chasing crazy dreams just melt away.  When this is literally steps from your new front door it kinda makes you think life's going be OK.  You look up at the blue sky, take a deep breath of crisp, clean mountain air and think....I don't know what's going to happen, but right now, in this moment, life is good.  And the rest, well, it'll just work itself out.

Those are my friend's dogs. I wish I had half the energy they did. Though I probably wouldn't have rolled in the snowbanks quite as much. ;)
