A day to savor

We made it. K ran all the way to a spot where we love to gaze at the morning light on the mountains. The last time that she stood on this mini-arch was 7 months ago, the day before her toe situation made running impossible. On that day, I had no idea that K wouldn't be able to run that far again for a long long time. I also had no clue that she'd end up losing a toe to a nasty infection. But, that's behind us now.
On our way there, we had some wildlife peeping at us.
Near the end of our ride, K's eyes glowed with happiness. My eyes glowed too but they're not as stunning as K's eyes!

A day to savor...


  1. We are savouring it from here!

    Thanks for sharing!

    BTW, my word is NOSES

    Shouldn't that be SNOOTER?

  2. Gorgeous photos as always:-) Hope your fire danger eases a bit.

  3. Do nOt tells anybuddy dat I gots weepy eyed reading dis post.
    What a moment to treasure! I gots all giddy reading dis.
    Well Done K and mom!


  4. Love the shot of K's eye. Kind of looks like a flower.

  5. I love the picture of K on the arch! She just looks so regal and majestic. I hope we'll see lots more of K getting back to her favorite haunts! :)

    I never get tired of looking at K's eyes!

    It was unseasonably warm for us on Sunday -- in the mid-eighties, which is what made getting in the water possible for all of us. The body part washing up is sad, but if it's who they're talking about, I will be happy for her family to finally know about her and stop wondering. It's been a statewide mystery for a while now.

  6. Those pictures are absolutely gorgeous!! Thanks for sharing them!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

  7. K's eye is remarkable...starlike! I must look at Sophie's to see if she has a similar design.

  8. That is seeing eye to eye! They make great decorations on the rock.

  11. Indeed it is a very special day. I can't tell you how happy I am that this milestone has been reached. It warms my heart.

  12. We all remember so very well that it wasn't too long ago that we all worried about K's future on your trails. She has the same courage and perseverance and strength as her best friend - you. We are overjoyed for both of you

  13. Congratulations on making it! yay!!!

    I remember first reading about K's toe and my heart breaking for you and her, I am so glad the way things have turned out for you both!

  14. She does have the most beautiful eyes! So happy for you both!

    Your pal, Pip

  15. K looked so grand and regal up on her perch that she hasn't been on for a time. Its all just wonderful that she "made it", with you at her side.

    Will she require check ups to see if the infection is staying away?

    Good luck, K, we will always root for you.



  16. Enjoy this fabulous day and never say never! Love K on the arch!!

  17. K and her stunning eye.. and all the beauty you share with us,,

  18. Congratulations! It has been a long hard journey! Know we are savoring the joy as well. (and our eyes are a little moist).

  19. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

  20. The eye picture rocks! nicely done

  21. Hugs to K for coming back, all the way. Her eyes look like stars, or flowers, can't decide which.

  22. Hi Y'all,
