Matt had a medical clerkship in Colorado Springs last month. I happily tagged along.
We saw some old friends and got in a couple of hikes.
When we lived in Colorado, I much preferred the summer outdoor activities to the winter sports. Why? Well, hiking is free, does not require a lot of gear or technical skill (both of which I don’t have), and offers such colorful and majestic views.
Here are some shots from last month.
For some reason, we both felt compelled to put our hands on our hips at this next spot.
I love the imagery of that. He’s so powerful and protective.
I love too how none of His colors clash. (It’s fair to say that my tank top does a little bit, but I mean none of the colors in nature.)
We did break a couple cardinal rules of hiking in Colorado:
- Start early enough to get off the mountain before the afternoon storms roll in.
- Wear layers
So glad for the chance to go back.
