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!

Two Mountain Mamas, a Dad and a Dog

There is nothing like breathing in that fresh mountain air while on a 7 mile hike in Estes Park (Lion Gulch Trail), part of the Rocky Mountain National Park system. The elevation gain was about 1700 ft., which is not that bad, though, I will admit, we did have some heavy breathing while we climbed up a bit from the three of us and dog Gunner - a German Shorthaired Pointer. 

But, for me, I was thrilled that I finally quieted the Mountain "gods" that have been screaming my name for the past few months to come and play in the mountain ranges. The bonus: a chance to hike and climb and heal my hurt heart surrounded by beautiful mountain wildflowers, tall pine trees and big meadows once we reached a certain area on the out and back hike/trail.

BSoleille! The bright side of Colorado mountain air!
