This morning, early, Shyla and I visited Hug Hill. I found myself overwhelmed with gratitude that we have such a glorious spot within 15 minutes of mountain bike pedaling from our house. My gratitude tells me that I am where my spirit belongs.
Shyla adores playing on Hug Hill. Somehow, she's managed to get past the fact that a bad person hit her in this spot about a year ago. Thank goodness that we can still love this place despite that awful event.
It's also the place where we see incredible sunsets on a regular basis. It's an easy hike from our house, and we just sit and watch as the sun colors the clouds orange.
At this time of year, we sit and watch until late because the sunset isn't finished its show until close to 9PM.
itäs great that such places still exist... even when they sadly are rare now...ReplyDelete

It is easy to see why you are drawn to Hug Hill. It is such a beautiful place. Those first two photos almost look like paintings.ReplyDelete
How wonderful that you and your girl have a place that speaks to your soul and you feel peace and contentment there.ReplyDelete
Awwwwww! Lookie at you gurl! You are one happy puppers! I would loves to run with you on Hug Hill!ReplyDelete
Everyone has their place in the world. We enjoy visiting places like where you live, but Mom could not live there. She couldn't live in a city either. We need the outer ring of suburbia. It makes us happy, but visiting places like yours is always wonderful and you are lucky to be able to live there.ReplyDelete
Here's to making loads of wonderful memories there on your hilltop and enjoy those spectacular sunsets!ReplyDelete
Wow...I can understand how sitting and enjoying Hug Hill can settle one's mind, it is so very beautiful!ReplyDelete
I would soooo love to visit Hug Hill!ReplyDelete
I know that feeling of gratitude and that you are where you belong. I often stand in my yard, looking at all our land, and feel the same way. I'm so grateful we ended up here. We feel it even more when we go back to where we used to live (in Mass.) to visit family. We couldn't imagine ever going back there to the towns and cities and hectic life.ReplyDelete
