The road ends, but the journey continues...

Yep, today's the day: 37 years…


Yep, today’s the day: 37 years since saying our vows atop Flagstaff Mountain…and a life together as varied as those Rocky Mountains themselves –

Paths of uphill scree, steep descent, craggy gorges, magnificent vistas, timberline breath-taking peaks, peaceful breezes through the ‘Quakies’, violent storms, just as quickly turn into meadowlands for mellow musings –

Hard trails, easy climbs, high flying hopes matching mile high views, seriously focused hiking through outcroppings of tortuous beauty, learning the landscape –

Getting our mountain legs together as One.

    Congratulations on your wedding anniversary. I used to travel a lot and I know what you mean about the fog that engulfs you sometimes. I found you through the Meet and Greet this weekend and I enjoyed reading several of your posts. Enjoy your special celebration and do something nice for yourself!

      Welcome, Diane! Thank you for taking the time to explore my site from the M&G…I’ll take a gander at yours here in a bit.
      Ahem, and the something special for myself is: tah-dah – lazing around in my pj’s while hubby works on updating my computer. Nice.
      You enjoy the weekend, too!

      Weird, I replied and it shows on the blog post, but not here as answered…so am doing a token re-response: Thanks for stopping by and taking time to read some of my posts, Diane.
      Will check out your blog here soon.
