There Is A World Out There
Well, I actually got out of the house today for the first time in three weeks other than a jaunt to the store real quick. Been down with pneumonia and dealing with those beautiful new puppies. Tomorrow we do a vet check. One of them is starting to open its eyes!
So today I got to drive up north (about 1 1/2 hr one way)where we go to church to teach my Bible Study. It was a beautiful drive and like an idiot I forgot my camera so you will just have to close your eyes and imagine.
There is a grade that you go down that is extremely curvy and a very steep grade. As you start at the top you look out over this vista of unimaginable beauty. Way at the bottom there is a river. Between you and that point are tons of trees, a meadow or two, cattle roaming and deer skipping through the valley. Pine, aspen, tamarack...all kinds of trees. All sizes and all shapes. Wild turkey is rampant through that area.
Today the clouds were hanging over the tops of the trees like soft white cotton was draped and woven in and among them. The sun was shining and there was reflection from way at the bottom on the river of those clouds. Took my breath away by the beauty. Next time I will remember my camera. I grew up in Iowa and while the green rolling hills and the fields are pretty, in my heart nothing can compare to the enormous beauty of the mountains in and around the area where I live.
I've traveled much, seen much of the good old USA and every area has its draws and its own kind of beauty. For me, this will always be home. I can breathe here.

Glad you are feeling better and got out today. I look forward to those photos...it sounds beautiful.
I grew up in Idaho and your discription brought back many mind pictures. You'll have to rememeber that camera so we can enjoy the scenery.
GR: Thank you. It's been a long haul. I would take up all the space in existence if I posted all the pics of this beautiful country. But I'll post one or two soon.
I'm glad you're better, and I'm not going to forgive you for forgetting that camera of yours! *lol* Plesae remember it next time?
Droopy - I usually carry it with me at all times but I was so excited to get out of the house I simply forgot it. Won't happen again. LOL
