Rocky Mountain High
Last week I was off in Denver and the surrounding environs. There was snow on the ground and some little flakes in the air, but the weather was pleasant and the scenery spectacular! A little hiking, a museum visit and some riding around to enjoy the views made for a fantastic few days. Sometimes we can forget how beautiful winter can be, especially when everyone is promoting trips to warm sunny climates. (Or if you're like me and have family in Florida who were basking in 80 degree temps -- yes, they'll enjoy it, at least until it's spring and the 80's turn to 90's and 100's and they get a $600+ electric bill!) But the crisp weather, the snow on the ground, the beautiful Rocky Mountains and a few days to enjoy it remind me to appreciate each season. This cold, snowy season has its own special joys and the warm, sunny days will, too. But it takes a full year, each season in its own time, to really complete us.
