This past weekend I got out to the hills with my friend Carson. I feel like The Rockies gave us everything they had to offer this time around. We wandered through snowy river valleys and lakes occasionally catching a glimpse of a peak through drifting clouds. We felt the emptiness of a derelict forest, so still in the aftermath of a recent fire. We tested our aim throwing rocks and rolling boulders off escarpments. We chased any animal we laid eyes on, trying to coral them for the perfect shot. We stared in awe at a family of bald eagles resting after eating their fill of a deer. We trekked up one of the most stunning canyon trails that led to a powerful waterfall. And at the days end we stumbled upon a perfect little spot to have a fire, eat and reminisce as the sun went down and the moon came up. What a blessed life we can lead if only we seek it out.
