“Friendship Adventure”



I just finished a wonderful week with friends who traveled from Connecticut and Oklahoma to experience my beloved Rocky Mountains.  We had quite the adventure hiking and being in the mountains together.  However, the highlight was probably getting up at 3:30 a.m. to get to the tundra area of Rocky Mountain National Park – over 12,0000 feet high – for sunrise.  We trekked up the path to the Rock Cut area and were humbled by the altitude and the blessings of our environment.  Yet, we were at peace together for the beginning of a new day.  We held hands and prayed for the earth, our families and our country and were amazed by the beauty around us.  Yes, sometimes friendship can be a life adventure together and I wish this experience for all.  Be with your friends, enjoy your friends and most of all –  love your friends and the people in your world.

(I have not used the self-timer on my camera in years.  However, it certainly was a handy tool for this sunrise experience.)
