When you go there, you go at the pace of the water
and that pace ties you into a flow that is
older than life on this planet.
Acceptance of that pace, even for a day,
changes us, reminds us of other rhythms beyond
the sound of our own heartbeats."
-- Jeff Rennicke, from River Days: Travel on Western Rivers

clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese,
high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting-
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things." - from Wild Geese by Mary Oliver

What gorgeous sights can we drive to in these four (currently) extra hours of daylight?!
"...It's opener there

And that, my fine people, is the truth about springtime in the Rockies.

"All stories are love stories.
Paul remembered someone famous saying that...All men get the things they love.
The tragedy of some men is not that they are denied, but that they wish they'd loved something else."
