AFTER THE BUSIEST EVER, NON-STOP SPRING, I'VE LEFT THE GRAVITATION PULL OF MIDDLE TENNESSEE and landed temporarily in Boulder, Colorado on my way to Laramie, then Jackson, Wyoming soon.
What better way to start getting acclimatized to the higher elevations of the Rockies than to climb one of the steepest mountains near Boulder---Sanitas which means health. It was far too crowded early today for my tastes, but a great climb---albeit a hard one coming from a much lower altitude-- nonetheless, and even greater descent. While going up is challenges muscles, heart and lungs, coming down with all the very slippery sandy scree on much of the very dry trail challenges hikers to keep from slipping and falling. I did slip twice but fortunately had soft landings both times on me buns!
I'm a southern Christian conservative with a degree in civil & environmental engineering and a passion for the truth of God's Word, writing, hiking, investing, fly fishing, cooking and the great outdoors. My favorite tech invention = spellcheck. There are no such things as rights without responsibility, a free lunch, cheap grace, man-made climate change, successful government engineering, or figuring out when life begins. We're hurling towards the abyss with only One Life-Line: it's not botox, a "living" Constitution, celebrity president, or making nice with Iran. Meanwhile, God gave us His Word, His Son, Grace Upon Grace, family/friends and the greatest country in the world to live--if we can keep it. E-mail: webutante07 at gmail dot com. Thanks for coming by.
