Where I Live, Day Six...

I spent the morning today with a good friend who's recovering from surgery. She's my age, but last year she fought breast cancer (and won :D); on Wednesday, she had her reconstruction surgery. She's doing well, and she had an amazing view from her window of the Front Range, which means she'll be able to see the fireworks tonight -- yay! :)

But it certainly made me doubly grateful that I'm able to walk outdoors and enjoy the beauty...right now the breeze is blowing (a warm one), the leaves are dancing -- it's a typical CO summer day, I'd say!

It's time for a seasons' photo array, I believe (inspired by pixiechick_sw's beautiful shots of her street in all seasons. Sadly, I can't be as organized as her, so I won't have the same picture in all seasons -- but I certainly have seasonal shots...beginning with summer, since that's where we are :)

This is near Pawnee Pass, in the Indian Peaks Wilderness area, right above Brainard Lake. We love this area, and I've hiked it many, many times (including with Ellie on my back) -- Pawnee Pass is to the right of this picture, up above timberline. This was taken on a summer evening (before kids)...
