LIfe at High Altitude in Colorado

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view. May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.

-Edward Abbey, naturalist and author (1927-1989)

Happy 2013

Happy 2013!

I feel as though I'm waking up from a long rest!


I'm rejuvenated and ready to begin the new year.
How about you?



Right now, at this moment, Life is presenting us options - each of us chooses a unique path.




Each day brings us seeds of new possibilities and opportunites.




Best Wishes to you whatever path you choose.
I hope to follow your progress along the way.


Happy New Year!

(I'll be posting small stones daily during the month of January at One Good Thing.)

I wish you much happiness and thank you for your caring over the last few months, - I too feel the new year urging me to gracefully immerse myself in a new way of living, which I know would please Charles. Happy New Year to all of us...

  9. The first day of 2013 started with the beautiful weather here in Nara Japan.

    What a lovely post fitting for the New Year. I like the third photo very much and your word with it. I feel as if I can hear each flower whispering in a gentle voice. Yes, we can always find a seed of new possibilities around us.

    Today, my husband, family in laws and I celebrated the New Year with the traditional dishes I made. I have a full stomach now. Tomorrow, our sons and younger son’s family: his wife and a daughter: will come and
    spend four nights at our house. Now, I need to keep my strength for going out with our lively granddaughter.

    Happy New Year, Barb!

  13. Happy New Year Barb!
    I loved reading your update on your checkup...
    "Healing is different from cure" is an amazing thought I will keep close and remember.
    It was great to hear of your "extended warranty!" I love the way you write!

    I was thinking of you at Christmastime... Jason's girlfriend spent her Christmas week in Breckenridge skiing with family.
    Her photos are so beautiful.

    Barb, I wish you and Bob a beautiful New Year ... Filled with joy, health and wonder-filled moments!
    God bless you always,
    ~ Maria
    Ps... Thank you for sharing your beautiful words...

  24. Your photos are awesome-so creative and beautiful. The pic of the poinsettia tree was taken by my daughter on her trip to Phoenix last week. It is very cold here in Kansas right now. We did have a "dusting" of snow for New Years Day which was nice. Happy New Year to you--hope it is filled with peace, joy, and many blessings. Mickie ;)

  28. I love that first photo, Barb! It's inspirational.
    You seem to have plenty of snow for ski touring. We went out today for a 2 hour tour. No frostbite, thank goodness, on our 20 degree day.

  43. Hello Barb- Happy New Year! Glad you are celebrating the new year out in the natural world that you love. Hope you had a wonderful holiday season. I am on my way to San Diego to see family & should be there by tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing them & resting, too. :)

  44. Happy New Year!! I love these photos! I admit I am always sad to take down the Christmas tree, and then Garrett left for Camp Pendleton on New Year's Day, but I am ready for 2013, and hopefully more snow this winter!

  46. the sunrays and your tracks get me excited to get back out in the snow : ) thanks for your kind comment today ~ happy new year!

  47. Wish I could join you in those ski trails. I thought nothing of the cold when I lived full time in the Eastern Sierra, now I'd think twice about getting on the skis and probably stay in front of the fire.
