Estes Park, Colorado (USA)
I had a beautiful day here, in the mountain town of Estes Park.
The trouble with me is, as much as I WANT to be a good photographer *smile*
I can't seem to remember to have my camera ready! And I left town (after a nice visit and lunch
with Alan's uncle & aunt) and realized I took zero photo's! (Good grief girl : l )
So I stopped; just outside the edge of town near the lake, and snapped a few.
(I wanted you to see the quaint city, but another time )
These novice photo's do not do the grandeur of this place justice; but you can get a glimpse anyway~
"NO BOATS" : ) is a good idea on a frozen lake! LOL
Below is a peek at some of the mountain residences, and the highway that will take me home.
When I saw this frozen waterfall (below) about 20 miles out of town, I knew I had to stop. It instantly brought to mind a song by contemporary Christian music artist, Nicole Nordeman.
It's called "Every Season" (you can find it on youtube if you're interested.)
She sings of each season; Summer, Autumn, Winter, Spring - and how she sees God in the present beauty of the moments in time. Here is what she had to say about Winter~
. . . And everything in time, and under Heaven
Finally falls asleep
Wrapped in blankets white, all creation
And I notice You when branches crack
And in my breath on frosted glass
Even now in 'death', You open doors for life to enter
You are Winter~
There IS great purpose in Winter~ And in this season of ' stopping to rest a little while' and collect my thoughts and bearings, I too want to see all the beauty and learn all I can with God's direction.
He is the only One worth following *smile*, and I want to know more!
Wishing you all much blessings and love~
