Due to the floods, I completely forgot that yesterday was See Beautiful Friday. It's one of my favorite blog hops so I was sad to have missed it.
I make a conscious decision to try to see the beauty around me, in all sorts of situations, even when floods are inundating our world. You can see the See Beautiful tag that Shyla is wearing below sent to us by our friend Goose.
As I stood on Hug Hill talking with the vet, I could see and hear a train of helicopters shuttling people out of the high mountains and down to the plains. Some mountain towns are in really bad shape, with no water, power, phone service, food, or access in or out. The residents in the worst shape were flown out today.
After our protracted time on the gorgeous vista of Hug Hill, Shyla and I pedaled through the forest. Aside from nightly fussing over her ear, she seems fine.
This trail's stream was pretty shallow but I thought that the water that Shyla was kicking up looked beautiful.
