Happy Thanksgiving!! Just a few of the things that make me thankful today and everyday:
•Family- both the one I was born with and the one I have chosen.
•Pups- (also family) they bring unconditional love, laughter, energy, hilarity, cuddles, devotion and more than I can list, my furry children. •Mountains- This wild place soothes my soul, has given me a measure of serenity and healing that has eluded me most of my life. And it awes me that after five years, everyday the clouds, weather, light, time of day, time of year make them look new. I'll never be bored.
~What are you grateful for today? (I'd really like to know ❤😊)

Atmospheric Clear Creek Resevoir|
Cold, damp pants and long johns are the only buffer between my chilled knees and the ground. However, minor discomforts aside, I'm acclimated to the cold and elevation. The weather, the buffeting wind, the smell of water and beach and the impending weather. Silence that feeds the soul, but so many telling, familiar, natural sounds for those that can be still, open their hearts and minds and Hear them. 
This is not discomfort, this is exhilaration. 🏞💚 #mountains#lake#rocks#shore#beach#alpine#landscape#photooftheday#brown#gray#elevation#highcountry#clearcreekresevoir#november#rockymountains#Colorado

I'm in a colorful, vivid, happily chaotic and creative mood this morning, so here is a shot from last summer at Cottonwood Creek. 
Do you associate your moods, emotions, creative energy with specific colors, cool or warm tones, matte or glossy, muted or vibrant, jewel or pastel, or even black and white, the mediums and techniques?

Moments like these. My everything. 
So very appropriate for Thanksgiving week. What makes you grateful today?

The last time I was here, several weeks ago, I could barely stand up straight from the bitterly cold, biting wind. 
Yesterday it was 25°F/3°C, much colder than the last time. But because it was still and the sun was shining, we were completely comfortable in hoodies and knit caps. 
Weather in the high country. 🌞💪❤ #snow#mountains#view#vista#ice#rockymountains#highcountry#elevation#altitude#parkcounty#southpark#winter#nature#surreal#landscape#photooftheday#temperature#weather#hiking#weekend#Colorado

Arkansas River
It is a rainy or snowy day in the valley, depending on where you found yourself and at what time. 
Headed back from Leadville we got the whole spectrum.

My grandmother loved mums. Scent memories are such powerful time machines. What smell instantly transports you to another time and place?

This is the time of the year when the color leaves and everything is fairly drab. I'm ready for winterscapes and fairylike frost and everything covered in pristine snow. 
In case anyone is counting my vote. 😁❄ #snow#blueheeler#hubby#evergreen#landscape#dof#photooftheday#mountains#outdoors#heeler#acd#lovemyboys#Colorado
Study of Mt. Princeton.
This mountain, with the symmetrical three peaks, is both easily recognizable and front and center over town. I have been photographing, gazing at, climbing, exploring from nearby for five years now. It still awes and inspires me. 
What is a subject that you return to again and again, that never bores you? (Good morning!) #mountains#landscape#photooftheday#nature#photograper#musings#thoughts#winterscape#wilderness#CollegiatePeaks#Colorado
Exploring small nooks and crannies fascinates me as much as discoveries of larger views and vistas. I feel like I've discovered a closely held secret, shared by few. One with texture and substance that I can reach out and touch. A tactile as well as visual feast. 
This is from the next place I want to camp. ⛺
