Blue Bowl Day

Self portrait with the cliff top juniper & Bowie

Yesterday was one of those blue bowl days — not a cloud in the sky and sunshine bright enough to make you forget the season. Today, I’ll remember it’s winter: I’m dusting off my snowshoes and heading to the Sangre de Christo’s to climb Deception Peak via Ravens Ridge! Check back for photos!

D.O.G. & Our Big Backyard. My place is on the left, by the low hill down below.

My mom will hate this photo!
