I could use a solid sunny surf escape right about now.

Colorado is called colorful Colorado because of the mountains, rivers, canyons, lakes and the incredibly exotic shades of the sky during sunsets. One other reason is this - could stake a claim to be the rainbow capital of the world.

The one in Creede has already been posted here and there are 3 more from Denver.
It’s interesting how we each remember things differently.
The other day Brian and I got into a discussion about an image he posted. We both had a different perspective/memory of what we saw. While the basics were the same, we disagreed on everything else. In the end, it didn’t matter because it was just a picture.
But how often do disagreements turn into something much larger and destructive. We dig our heels in to have our point of view heard and honored. There are times when this is absolutely necessary but can we take a deep breath and remember that we come from different life experiences and we’re at various points on our journey.
I’ve talked about this before and probably will again because I constantly need this reminder. More compassion, both for ourselves and others, would help us all.
Also, can you spot the two rock climbers?
Because the other million snow posts you’ve seen today weren’t enough

Washington's filled with incredible mountains and top notch camping spots in areas like Mt Baker National Forest or North Cascade National Park. From Vancouver, they are only roughly 3 hours away. This coming summer find a hike you wanna do and go get after it!

I woke up this morning thinking it was going to be an ordinary day. The only thing different was that I had a doctor’s appointment.
Well, the doctor’s appointment actually changed the ordinary day in to an exciting one.
A year ago this month, and for the following four months after, due to stress, severe anxiety, the resulting depression and inability to sleep, I lost 31lbs.
I have struggled and fought to both overcome the emotional setbacks, as well as regain the weight.
Well, today, my first check-up since Halloween, I have gained 9.7lbs. -
That may seem like an easy accomplishment for some, but for me, gaining weight is as hard as losing weight is for others.
I’ll take my small victory!
