One of my greatest pleasures is living in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains. There is something sacred and awe-inspiring about these monoliths...so rugged and raw and untouched. Though we were unable to camp in the mountains for our summer vacation as planned, we did still manage to spend a few days which was lovely. This particular mountain was the view we enjoyed outside our window, and from the rooftop hot tub which was so refreshing, even in the rain.
I love the silence in the mountains with just the sound of the ravens and the wind rustling in the trees. Because we live in one of the fastest growing communities on one of the busiest highways, I treasure the time spent surrounded by nature.
