Sunshine in the Rockies

We awoke to a clear blue sky on this last full day for us in Estes Park. This is what we saw out of our bedroom window.
Later this morning we took a walk around Lily Lake.
There was evidence of the rainy weather we've had all week in the hollow of this rock ... a naturally formed birdbath.
All of our walks during this last week have looked much like this photo. If wasn't actually raining, there was the threat.
On the walk around Sprague Lake in the photo above there were many puddles to traverse on the trail.
In spite of, or maybe because of, the weather I'm feeling the beneficial relaxation of being on vacation. I'm on my fourth book and not thinking much about mid-west prairie flowers ... at least not with that tinge of panic I brought with me.

That scenery is beautiful no matter what the weather is. What a treat on waking and seeing that through your window. Glad you are feeling relaxed and refreshed - that's a sign of a good holiday.

What a lovely landscape. I'm sure the rain is not too much bother. It may even enhance the smell of fresh grass.
Enjoy this relaxation.
