I love the wide openness – the vastness of the landscape– almost impossible to capture on film. I love wildflowers – fields of daisies in mountain meadows. Icy blue lakes. Snow in June. I love going to the National Parks – we visited two new ones: Great Sand Dunes and Black Canyon of the Gunnison. I love appreciating the views and vistas that much more because I’m breathing so hard at 12,000 plus feet! I love marmots! (And pikas too, but we didn’t see any pikas this time.) Please enjoy the slideshow!
