Seven Days In Fall: Like God, On The 7th Day I Rested (While Everybody Else Worked Out)


As you may notice from the photos, I've jumped ahead for a sneak peek this year's meander to Southwest Utah. We loaded Goldie to the gills and have been out for two glorious weeks...tromping through red dust and sandstone, which to me, is akin to Heaven!

Seven Days In Fall: Day 6


And what is life, really, but the moment?
Now is where the past leaves off.
Now is where the future begins.
Here and now is all and everything...
Gone in a heart-stopping flash.

Seven Days In Fall: Day 5, New Route to Ice and Island Lakes


Ice Lake is fast becoming one of the most popular hikes in Southwest Colorado. It's no surprise to us, we continue to go there every year to gaze spellbound into Ice Lake, one of the bluest lakes we've ever rested eyes on. As dazzling as Ice Lake's sky-blue water is, it's the ragged, rustic, iron-bleeding cirque setting that sets it apart from the likes of, say, Columbine Lake.

With oak brush and aspens above Lovely Ouray on fire with color, we set boot to trail again...weary from recent miles and altitude.

Seven Days In Fall: Day 3, Cutler Creek Loop Hike


"Give thanks for moments of wild abandon (that) lift us from our daily drudge and put us up on the silver screen, rather than out in the audience getting fat on popcorn." David Petersen, "On The Wild Edge"

Seven Days In Fall...Day 1


"We all age and weaken and die. What we are, and are not, is largely a product of the choices we make. We only live once, and most of us don't even do that."  On The Wild Edge, David Petersen.
