Day 52 of Gratitude in 100 Days of Gratitude
Wednesday, June 28, 2017
Another hike up the 35 degree angle mtn across the road from our house (which is at 8,600' above sea level). I climbed & climbed up a mtn only to reach more "up" and more "up" and then I was on the 2-track slightly inclined "road" (not a road..just "land"). Up ahead are two deer and a fawn. I stopped. We stared at each other. They're not dangerous at all, but they get spooked if you move a muscle. Suddenly the 2 does (moms) bounced up the road. And the fawn bounced down the road toward me! Yay! "Mom" came down to the fawn & we stared at each other some more. Then they bounced away together.
Then the butterflies started hiking with me! Gorgeous, all sizes and colors and they always lead the way for me. I heard a tree branch crack not far away in the woods (an animal had stepped on it and broken it) and I stepped over some bear scat (look it up if you don't know what that is). Walked 10,000 steps. I'm grateful for beautiful Colorado!
