colorado love affair

 

last dollar road, 12,311′ and mt. wilson, 14,246′

i have a requited love for colorado.  i belong here.  i feel like i’ve lived thousands of years and thousands of lives here.

and that’s not true of every place i’ve called home.  i knew some were temporal.

but not this one.

on any given day, i can open any one of my maps, put my finger on a point, and with relative ease, slip off to that place.  a place i’ve never been.  to do things i’ve never done.

pure frontier freedom.
