myself and everything else

My day, my dreams, and a few other things.

The Plains, the plains!!!

This summer my husband and I traveled to Colorado.  I have written and dreamed of mountains my entire life and now I was going to finally see them.  Words cannot describe Colorado, the wonderful drive through Rocky Mountain National Park, the hiking, fly fishing, sleeping in a sweet little cottage next to a river, I am forever changed.

We drove I-70 from Indiana to Colorado, It was a long drive and I was so full of excitement, reading highway exit signs of town names along the highway sent my imagination into a spin of what life was like way back then, all those old wild west towns I remember from movies, books, names on highway signs passing me by at 75 mph; Salina, Abilene, Hays, Dodge City, Burlington.  Before our trip several people told us that the drive on I-70  is horrible, boring and we should fly to Colorado.  I found the views breathtaking off I-70,  so vast the flat lands and rolling hills, scattered with ranches and thousands of cattle in pastures grazing tall grasses and all the old lovely barns that were barely standing.   This drive was so important and I tell everyone with great excitement how I enjoyed my drive on I-70 and all the beauty there is to see.

The Great Plains led me to the mountains and touched my soul.
