"We are here to unlearn the teachings of the church, state, and our educational system. We are here to drink beer. We are here to kill war. We are here to laugh at the odds and live our lives so well that Death will tremble to take us." C. Bukowski

Our last hike with Lisa and Hans called for yet another run up the coiled snake-of-a-road, Million Dollar Highway....a mere notch, blasted from colorful solid rock. It weaves like a drunken sailor, corkscrewing it's way south to Silverton. Guardrails? Nope, not enough room. The edge of the pavement might as well be the edge of the earth, it separates Life from Death. It's an interesting route, 550 south, till winter sets in. Russian Roulette, anyone?

"Art is a lie that makes us realize truth, at least the truth that is given us to understand. The artist must know the manner whereby to convince others of the truthfulness of his lies." Pablo Picasso

Lisa and Hans of Team Metamorphosis Road (love that name!) joined us for a hike to one of our favorite "post cards" yesterday, Ice Lakes. I always get a thrill out of dragging RV friends above timberline to show off the unimaginable brilliance of this sapphire gem.

Lisa and Hans of Metamorphosis Road arrived in Lovely Ouray for a couple of weeks of hiking and biking and Brew Pubing. They even brought along their RV entourage of Jen and Deas, and Merianna and Brian; you meet the nicest people in RVs, and sometimes you just want to take them with you.

There she goes again, Itsy Bitsy Bobbie, insatiably curious, scrambling through bloody, clenched Jaws of Backcountry Utah, swimming sand-canyon gullets like an out of school minnow, making her way through maze after maze after maze, in search of unrelenting wonders that await around the next corner. Some never outgrow their childhood curiosity to explore, and aren't we the lucky ones.
