Amazing Experience in the Colorado Rockies

As a well-spent day brings happy sleep, so a life well spent brings happy death.

– Leonardo Da Vinci

I took this several weeks ago while snowshoeing in the Colorado Rockies in RMNP. We were hiking to black lake (unfortunately the snow got too deep and with limited time we never made it) and came upon this frozen lake in the shadow of a very impressive and menacing mountain in the distance. The sky was clear so the ‘clouds’ above the mountains are not actually clouds but snow blowing off the tops of the mountains in the distance. The temps were in the single digits and the lake provided a nice flat area for the wind to whip across unobstructed.

It was bone chillingly cold but I would never trade in this day because the weather made it that much better. I was awfully tired but at the end of the day I slept well knowing I was able to experience something many dream off. I’ve been very blessed to travel the way I do and while there are frustrations the good outweighs the bad nine-to-one. This was a very long day that started with a four AM wake up call in Estes Park and ended with a drinks on a balcony in Longboat Key, Florida but one that added to my life being spent well and in death I hope to be satisfied with my journey.

  1. Absolutely stunning …. photo – so dramatic and … bold. You had a fantastic journey and a lot more to be added to it .. death shouldn’t even be on your screen yet.

      • I don’t know about this .. living every day as the last one – that it’s pretty tough and stressful going … The the last day comes it comes – when we are dead will will not be able to regret anything *smile
        There will always be things that we regret.
