A daily record of gratitude; from quilting to photography to a mix of technology, books, movies and the musings of life!

Welcome to my Blog of my daily gratitude and photo of the day!

Since January 1, 2012, my goal is to write a daily sentence or two (or paragraph or two) about gratitude of the day and to include one photo (at least) that I took that day (but will add others from time to time). It has definitely been a challenge most days throughout the past eight years, and welcomed the challenge again this year - 2020 - Covid and all. I hope you will continue the ride with me!

The Search is Over

After "willing it" for four days to see a moose, we finally saw one this morning on a Pinebrook Trail in Park City, Utah-(the IDare trail).  A site like none other of a big brown furry creature (we named it Gladys...as in glad for us!). The moose was a quite a surprise as we were hiking down the mountain with four people and two dogs that kind of made some "human hiking noises".  And let's not forget that moose do not like dogs of any sex, creed or stature. So as we admired this beautiful creature in which we thought from a "safe distance", we quickly learned she did not feel the same.  As she began to lick her lips and begin her approach to us fairly quickly, we did an about face on the trail and ran down part of the mountain; hearts pounding!  

A great hike to finish our Utah adventure and drive the eight hours back to Boulder, Colorado. 

Photos of Jenno and her husband Dan and their two labs, Ella and Maggie and Linda Misencik in the aspen arbor. Then Gladys!
