Sold our stuff. Bought a Bronco. Left Manhattan. Exploring America.
Days 20-25 #mountainsintoroads ↠Vale ↠Hanging Lake ↠Ouray ↠Black Canyon of the Gunnison
We'll just keep driving until we land someplace where there's no one around for miles.
Where we can kiss in fields for an audience of clouds.
Where the sun's radiant smiles shine a light to our path.
Up the rocks and steep mountain tops
Where the ticks and tocks of our beating hearts synced with footsteps are the only clocks to keep track of time.
Till we reach a sanctuary a paradise humans can touch with only breath and sight.
We'll crawl behind the curtains of His perfect creation and let their water fall all around us.
And we'll wonder again what we ever did to be chosen to live amongst it all.
The very rays of sunshine smiles that lead us to the top surround us in a beautiful exchange
And with respect for the mountain and The Lake That Hangs we trek back down to where the touched-world lives.
Making our way to Ouray where scattered showers cleanse our souls on a special day.
A day to remember a loved one without whom there would be no adventure no lakes that hang no Ouray.
We clink her favorite cones and toast her with the mountains.
Then get back in the truck and keep onward with the journey. Because life is filled with the most extraordinary beauty.
And even after the most extraordinary storms there is sunshine waiting on the other side. And another road leading to another grand adventure.
“I will love the light for it shows me the way, yet I will endure the darkness for it shows me the stars.”
In Peace, Mama. August 31, 2006
