Prepare for blinding light bouncing off snow. Got your shades? We were hanging with Cojo this weekend. The state cross country meet was over on Saturday. Sunday dawned all gorgeous and bright. Zoey had a date with her godmother.
Tom and I got to hang out in the morning, leisurely drink some coffee. We then decided to amble over to the eponymously named Powerline Pass. Vivi and Cojo were ecstatic to be out.
Everyone seemed to rejoice in the feel of some serious sunshine on our skin. Oh, it did wonders for my outlook.
We walked back on the flower trail. That was fabulous. I walk this trail all the time in summer. It is always full of wild geraniums, chocolate lilies, wood violets. Now it is all under at least six feet of snow. It is such a different perspective. Being that much higher really alters the view.
All too soon we had to walk back home. I had to go to work, Tom had to meet Zoey for a range opening. The real world was beginning to intrude. I did go to work with an altered mindset. I took that walk with me into my grey warehouse.
I think the willows are enjoying the increasing daylight. We passed ten hours of the sun above the horizon today! YIPPY!
This Boreal Chickadee has a fantastic view, he has the sunset on the highest peak in North America.
