I love my family. I really do. But we all need time to ourselves now and again. So even though I was in Colorado visiting my family I decided to take a brief hiatus and headed to Rocky Mountain National Park. I went high into the alpine tundras and then down into the valley. I hiked up to Mills Lake which is a beautiful and serene glacial lake with a cirque of peaks. The skies opened up and unleashed but it didn’t matter. It was worth it.
“Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature’s peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.” ~ John Muir
