- daring deeds.
If you are to go walking, hiking, adventuring on your own in Estes Park, CO, you have to have a slice of derring-do. Over a foot of snow fell this weekend and it’s been serene. I’ve watched about19 episodes of Hart of Dixie on Netflix, I’ve enjoyed about 12 cups of coffee. I’ve heated about 3 cups of frozen soup. A girl can’t live on TV, caffeine, and soup alone.
I strapped on my derring-do along with my cousin’s snow shoes and set off to explore.
First, I set up my hammock and sat in it for about four minutes. The snow was falling as I took it all in. The colors looked lovely against the white bright snow.
Then, I walked to the coffee shop. I saw this fella and his ears. He just stared. I stared back.
Then that evening, I decided to hike to the sunset and this guy was only about twenty feet away when I looked up:
The derring-do was lacking a bit here. Or common sense kicked in, and I turned around and took the long route to the sunset.
And then a day later on another walk:
I call this one “Greg, John, and Beth”
And then when I was back home watching my cousin’s dog, he started whimpering at the front window. When I went to look:
And now after four days inside, I can get out after shoveling this driveway. I’ll need a massage ASAP.
And with my new found freedom, I took a drive to Rocky Mountain National Park and saw these fellas!!
Wild. I can’t imagine what I’ll see tomorrow. May I have the derring-do to set out to explore some more.
