A Drive in the Country

September 16, 2011

On Friday morning, September 16, I spent much of the morning editing photos. About 10:15, I decided I had sat on my butt long enough, so I went for a walk up Deep Creek Road.

I didn't get very far. About a mile up the road, I had ascended high enough to see the Lagarita mountains off to the north. There was new snow on them.

I walked back to the house, grabbed my camera and some other items, and drove off toward Lake City. I stopped several times enroute to take pictures. Some of the time, I was in snow showers. Just short of Lake City, I headed up the road toward Cinnamon Pass. Below are some of the pictures I took on that drive.

I find peace in these mountains, silent except for the wind in the trees, and sometimes thunder and rain.

My life is blessed with a wonderful family, many friends, and beautiful places to live and visit. I have done little if anything to deserve these blessings, which are granted to me through the infinite mercy of God, and for which I am grateful every day of my life.
