I want my children and my grandchildren to live in a world with clean air, pure drinking water, and an abundance of wildlife, so I’ve chosen to dedicate my life to wildlife conservation so I can make the world just a little bit better.
Sharing a simple summer lunch on our back deck together
Giving a reading of my award-winning picture book
A summer walk in Crested Butte, Colorado
Our front deck on a Colorado cool summer morning
Walking our nature trail
“In every walk with nature one receives far more than he seeks.”
There are so many beautiful nearby hikes.
I appreciate that we can easily make a change to our daily
and weekly routine with an early morning hike and sometimes
a picnic as well.
We enjoy living in the mountains!
Hiking makes me feel so alive!
Our school…current inspirational message…
One of the many things I enjoy about where we live are the easy access
to different places to walk, picnic, have a spur of the moment adventure!
At every turn is a postcard pretty view…
VERY unusual – a fire in the fireplace June 13.
Two loads of firewood like this delivered in the spring
I don’t know what this is –
came across it on a hike and I thought it was picture worthy
The sky was interesting, as the weather was changing before our eyes
Our beautiful nature trail is right out our garden gate
Our routine is to sit by the river each evening
This a lovely way to unwind from the day
The river is on our nature trail – below our home
We have seen moose and deer here
Husband’s tasty salmon and vegetables
The fish has a crispy cheese covering
We are always delighted with Crystal Peak’s colorful sunsets
My husband makes us fresh bread regularly
I hadn’t had French toast in a long time
My favorite way to enjoy French toast is with powder sugar
and fresh blueberries and strawberries
Delicious salad and bread stuffed with spinach, cheese and peppers for dinner
Wii bowling is most satisfying when we both play well
Nature almost always plays a part in a really good day for me. This morning’s walk on our nature trail included a rainbow cloud. It is a fairly rare phenomenon. It’s a little miracle to me that I was in the right place at the right time to get to see this.
