The morning was perfect! There was a slight breeze, it was still on the cool side, birds were signing, and I was out moving! I have this fantasy that life in Colorado must be exactly like this morning.
I even fantasize about being more athletic because in Colorado everyone is the "outdoorsy" type. I mean, how could you not be with hiking and mountain bike trails everywhere? Right, then I had to come back to reality and remember that people in Colorado have to work too. I wasn't even camping in Colorado, I was in Texas. I think this delusion stems from the time I was in Colorado on business and stopped at a Starbucks which was attached to an REI. It was the most beautiful REI I had ever seen. They had trails leading right to it from somewhere off the property, and a stream! Darn, reality can be cruel.
On this lovely morning hike, in Texas, I did capture some amazing shots, and a cactus series grew from it.....
