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)

  2. 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!

  5. 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!

  24. 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

  28. Meditation in motion - sometimes movement creates stillness.

  29. 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.

  33. 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.
