Thankful Thursday

I've been feeling particularly thankful recently for where we live and for our wonderful pack.

I am so thankful to live in a place where "elk traffic jams" are the most common kind of traffic jam!

This young bull definitely was keeping an eye on me.

A clique of cow elk congregated nearby, trying to decide whether to cross the road or not.

I love having open land next to my home where I can ride my mountain bike and play with the Duo every day in peace and solitude.

And I adore having the snowy Rocky Mountains in our backyard!

I am so thankful for this pair of pups who make me and the Runner smile every day!

Somehow, we've managed to fashion a life that makes us all so happy.
For that, I am thankful.


  1. That is a beautiful thing to be thankful for!

  2. and i am thankful you can share what you have just outside your door. at first i thought Santa's Reindeer had run a way from home

  3. And a good life it is. I'm wondering of you got snow from this latest storm. Our kids on the front range and in Denver got hit hard. We had 11" - good skiing this AM.

  4. Yes, we have so much to be thankful for!

    Keep Calm & Bark On!
