While We Were Lambing

During lambing season, we decided to take the back way home to catch a glimpse of the wildflowers.  The beautiful show of white trillium, red trillium, trout lily, wood geranium and violets made the trip up the steep, narrow, rough road well worthwhile.
Each time we come home this way our thoughts are drawn to what must have been going through the minds of our Great-Great Grandparents Andrew and Amy and our Great Grandparents David and Hannah as they made this trip by horse and wagon carrying all their worldly possessions to our high mountain home.
What a blessing it is to have the opportunity to travel so often in their ‘footsteps’.

are reflecting on the new year a little early, as there is much we wish to
the most important is to hold on to the feeling of joy that bubbles up when we
reach the top of this hill and see the sky.
matter what the time of day, no matter what the weather, no matter what
problems we are trying to work through… joy is there… at this

moment… we know… we are… almost home.

Roadside Beauty

It’s that time of year when the roadsides are full of color.  You can’t miss the beauty as you make your way through daily chores, wander a bit farther down the road or sneak a stroll down the proverbial ‘road less traveled’.

Weekly Top Shot

Approaching the big turn at Bellview, it was such a treat to catch the sunshine breaking through for a moment.  The way it illuminated the side of the mountain and the frosted pines made our hearts swell.  This county road twists and turns, up and down, and in just a few minutes we were travelling a few yards below those frosted pine trees… following the road as it winds towards home.
