We spent awhile just wandering around and enjoying the beauty of the day. There was a crispness to the air and a goldenness to the light. I sat on a bench for awhile nursing Dumpling and taking pictures of Sweetheart and Pumpkin. It was wonderfully relaxing to sit and breath in the gentle pine fragrance. Surrounded by beauty and the majesty of God's creation, it made for a wonderful time of worship and prayer. Enjoying a day with the ones I love, laughing and living in the moment beats just about any other way I could have spent the time.
We continued to drive up the canyon to a lake and a little town. I took a few pictures of the lake which may get posted later. It was incredible. The water was so blue, as was the sky, that the whiteness of the snow on the distant peaks seemed to fairly pop out at you. I'm not sure the pictures will do it justice.
