When the garden is weedy from being ignored while you were traveling, when there is still a bag that needs completely unpacked from from the trip you came home from two and a half weeks ago and there's another needing unpacked from one you came home from a week ago, when you've a yard full of sticks that need to be picked up from a storm while you were on that first trip, when there's work to be done in the garage and a weeks worth of laundry to be washed, what do you do?
Head to the mountains for the day, of course!! This morning, Independence Pass (12,095 feet/3687 meters) beckoned and on a whim, I followed the call... The air was a little cooler up there and there were still random patches of snow. Wild flowers were still in bloom and it was as beautiful as I remembered. The work left to do? There's always tomorrow, or next weekend!
