Coming to the mountains really forces me to slow down and appreciate the beauty and wonder. I could live here, I really could.
I love the sound of the rushing River, especially in the spring when it is so heavy from the winter runoff.
The girls love to go for walks when we go to Beaver Creek - the road my parents house is chalk full of cool things to discover. Sometimes it is a brown bear looking for lunch, other times it is simply a marmot squealing to protect their young. There are Deer (complete with babies in the spring), Elk, birds, the occasional Owl or Wild Turkey...but more importantly to the girls this year is there is an abundant crop ofYUP. Dandelions! I am SO not kidding. These things are EVERYWHERE and they are huge - and quite frankly they are actually kind of pretty!
But watch out...one of them is sporting a TAIL!!
