LIfe at High Altitude in Colorado

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.

-Edward Abbey, naturalist and author (1927-1989)

Oh I cannot wait to get my snowshoes on and out in the snow. It is a peaceful feeling isn't it? Beautiful morning. B

Your white is pretty gorgeous, Barb! Love the photos. I sometimes wish we had more defined seasons out here in the Pacific Northwest. The snow is so beautiful, and your lead photo of the moose is fantastic. We've got rain, and more rain, and that's just the way it is!

So beautiful. Your header shot is a meditation itself. Wonderful post.

Grateful for another day - Me too!

Wow, skiing already. It looks so peaceful and calm. Thanks for sharing.

Sandra said...

What a great shot of the moose on your new header! I love the sun shining through the trees and especially that last photo of a sweet little snow-laden pine tree. It already feels like Christmas!

I remember that quiet from my childhood, living in Canada. Snow is a giant hush on a loud world. LOVE your header!

Arija said...

I can see how peace just envelops you in the still of the morning in such a place, gliding along in a natural cathedral. Beautiful shots Barb.

ladyfi said...

Wonderful shots! And what a lot of snow.

Jeanie said...

Indeed, this is a perfect meditation. What peace and tranquility you find in the snow and your woods. It is a treasure.

Sandy aka Doris the Great said...

Beautiful, especially the new header. As a Newfroundlander, I have a particular fondness for moose. You make me long for winter snow!

Jeanie said...

Beautiful, Barb. The snow hasn't quite made it down to us yet....hopefully soon.

Winter Wonderland! That's what came to mind when I saw your photos... so beautiful and serene. I love the little lone tree standing strong all by itself...

Good morning Barb,
The snow, sunshine and woods make a beautiful collaboration in your picture of early morning! Especially the sunlight passing through those woods is beautiful. The air must be cold, but how peaceful the atmosphere is! I like it.
It is getting cold day by day here and leaves are beginning to change the colors. I am enjoying your snow scene with a morning coffee!
I hope you have a good day,
Tomoko

Meditation in motion - sometimes movement creates stillness.

stardust said...

You made me in meditative mood after those hectic days, Barb. I’d like to walk along with you without words concentrating the stillness of the place, only hearing the sound of my breath as I trod on the snow. Today it’s raining on and off in the cold wind here in Nara. I don’t dislike a rainy day, but November rain this year really gets me down but I’ll be grateful for another day.

Nice place for meditation, greeting from Belgium

Janie said...

Such beauty and stillness is inspirational! The photos are lovely, Barb. You really have a lot of snow already! No snow at 5000 ft, but we can see it in the High Uintas.

Cheryl said...

The beauty around you is awesome! What a wonderful place to be alone and meditate. So hushed and still....

Anita said...

When I looked at your first picture, I felt immediate envy... until I realized that my simple walk along the sideswalks of my neighborhood this morning, with my dog, was just as fulfilling. I love your beautiful pictures and the thoughts that they produce.

Granny Annie said...

What else could create a more sincere meditation?

These are beautiful photos to meditate, Barb..
