There are two ways to live: you can live as if nothing is a miracle; you can live as if everything is a miracle. Albert Einstein.
When I look around me, the whole world is a miracle. The mountains, the sky, the trees, the bears, and our dogs.
I hope that a miracle is underway in this aspen grove. My friends and I spread huge number of columbine seeds in our forest last fall, including in this aspen grove. The seeds are sleeping right now under a deep layer of snow. I hope that we have new columbine seedlings next spring!
A storm moved into our world today, right in the middle of my snowbike ride. It was sunny when I started on the trails, following in the footsteps of two coyotes.
And, a thick snowy soup had invaded by the time I finished. It's been tough to keep riding even though K can't go with me on snowbike rides anymore. It makes me sad but I know that my spine feel worse if I don't ride.
K took advantage of the day to snooze by the fireplace.
Now, it's still snowing - not too hard but it feels like deep winter outside. The Labraduo loves it.
The softly falling snow speckled K's chocolate fur this evening.
During our evening hike, R had his trademark high-voltage energy. Sometimes it feels like he's going to levitate straight out of his skin with pure energy. He's an inspiring soul - he grabs every instant of joy and fully immerses himself in it. The miracle about R is that he's recently turned a sharp corner, becoming much more focused on us than on the world around him. I can be far more relaxed while hiking with him than I used to be.
I wonder if R's transformation will last? I think so. Miracles can happen.
I live at 8200' in the Front Range of Colorado. I love exploring nature
in the mountains while riding my mountain bike and romping with my
Labradors. Photography is another passion, including both "normal" photography and trail camera photography of wildlife.
