Some of you know that I had some health issues that sprang up last August out of nowhere. Things started to snowball and before I knew it, I was at UCLA meeting with 2 of the top neurosurgeons in the country talking about having a brain surgery. I am almost 4 months post-op now! It’s been a really long road, full of ups and downs, progress, setbacks, hope and ultimately…healing. I am so happy to say that I am really starting to feel like myself again. Slowly, I’ve gotten back into photography. Slowly, I’ve gotten back to my normal life.
For me, part of “normal life” is heading into the mountains to camp and hike. This weekend was the first time I really got back out into the wilderness and enjoyed some quality time in the fresh mountain air. It was glorious! David and I headed to the Flattops Wilderness, which is located a bit NW of Vail. We had never been to this part of Colorado and I’ve been dying to go, so we headed out for a simple one night camping trip. I couldn’t have asked for a better introduction back into the wilderness! We drank hot coffee in the cool mountain air, watched storms roll over the Flattops, fished, swung in our hammock, basked in wildflowers, had a great campfire and enjoyed a sky full of stars.
I am so looking forward to more of these weekends this summer and fall! I am going to try extra hard to document our adventures and post pretty photos to this little space of mine.
