The valley has been filled with a mid-tone color of gray as days of inversion, smog and fog are the rule. Nearly everyone you meet is negatively affect by the day after day of gray and gunk. If the sun deems to show itself it last only an hour or two and so, we decided to head up in search of an all day sun.
Friday afternoon we headed out of the muck and into the true blue sky. We stopped at Silver Fork to see if the deck was available and, even though it had been awhile, they gave us a warm and friendly greeting. Not only did we have the deck to ourselves, but a new firepit was started in case we needed the warmth.
At first we were unsure of the bright object in the sky, but it wasn't long before it caused us to shed our coats and happily while away the afternoon with orb of life warming our faces.
No matter the direction, the views are spectacular, with dark green forests, bones of aspens, and pure white snow covered mountains contrasting against the stunning blue sky. We felt very fortunate to have this wonderland in our backyard and even more fortunate to spend a workday afternoon doing nothing.
Milestones loom...post number 1800 is next, comment number 60,000 could happen within days (with your help), and my 7th Bloggiversary is March 1st, only a month away. There could be prizes involved, if I can get my act together. Thank you for being here with me.
