Peak to Peak
My friend and I were waiting in a small restaurant having a bite to eat while the innkeeper across the road got our cabin ready. A couple came in and started a conversation with us. They advised us to go back up the road the next morning and turn by the red mailbox. Continue up the mountain road for about 18 miles.
We did as they said, wondering a few times if we were still on the right road, and wishing perhaps our wise husbands were with us. As we came to the top of the ridge we could see the stunning aspen trees, the cloud covered valley, and the Sangre de Cristo range on the other side. Every few feet afforded a different perspective. There were a few lakes at the top also, adding an element to the almost overwhelming views. We felt very small, but very blessed to be on such sacred ground seeing such a display of God's glory.
I will be, in a few days, hopefully visiting the same spot with my husband. Snow on the golden aspen leaves is a layer that is exquisite, but not so fun for driving. We always seem to get breaks when it is time to capture the gift, and be able to navigate the roads. I hope to bring back some pictures for all of you that will encourage and increase your faith.
Praise the Lord from the earth,,,
you mountains and hills...
Let them praise the name of the Lord,
for his name alone is exalted;
his splendor is above the earth
and the heavens.
Psalm 148:7, 9, 13
