Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: SpRiNg

Spring is finally making an entrance here in CO. It is so wonderful that the birds are singing, trees are budding and flowers are erecting blooms. My neighbor is an avid gardner and has the most beautiful sanctuary in her backyard. So, I took a leisurely stroll through the garden gate and aimed my lens at all things “spring.” I simply adore this neighbor and her entire family and admire her love and knowledge of nature.

FuN at the Zoo #2

Several weeks ago my lil’ family joined other family members for a Sunday stroll at the zoo.  I wanted to share a few more animal photos.  If you missed the first set, you can check them out here.

Grayson Highlands State Park

If you are ever in or near Virginia, you simply must visit Grayson Highlands State Park.  It is near Mount Rogers and Whitetop Mountain, Virginia’s two highest mountains.  On one of our days of hiking, my lil’ family encountered beautiful wild ponies.

IMG_3460It was a beautiful day and a beautiful hike that still makes me smile.  Sometimes, it is the little things.  Do you have a particular hike or outing that remains etched in your memory and replays in a loop in your mind?
