A Rocky Mountain Sunset

Clouds covered the sun during my morning bike ride with Shyla. A good game of fetch made us both smile despite the clouds and winter wind.
Briefly, in the afternoon, the sun came out, and one of the few remaining autumn leaves caught my eye - a wild geranium leaf. It looked so bright and flashy compared to the rest of the world, which is in winter-mode, that I had to admire it.
Today was my first day since last weekend that I didn't have a migraine. I felt so free and light, without the pounding in my head. It made me smile all day long. I never realize how much a certain pain is dragging me down until it vanishes. I am taking one day at a time, and so I simply enjoyed not having a migraine today.

I headed out for our sunset walk with an extra spring in my step. The Duo and I saw a gorgeous sunset. It looked like fire embers were floating above the Divide to the south of us.
The mountain that Shyla and I hiked a couple of times this summer had an orange cloud above it. I love how the snow reflected the sunset colors.
A little to the north, it looked as if a column of fire was rising from a peak.
I love Rocky Mountain sunsets. Watching one is the perfect way to end the day.
Happy Friday!
