She has the sun, she has the mountains, the plains, the foothills, lakes… not to mention indescribable sunsets.
I managed to catch one of those tonight as I was in the car traveling toward the mountains. I reached the top of a hill and suddenly the Rockies were spread out before me, like a glorious picture.
The sun was starting to disappear behind them and a light like sweet honey was being cast upon the frontier. (I suppose I tend to associate beauty with different tastes.)
Anyway, it was one of those moments in which I found my breath caught in my throat. Cliché, but true.
It was one of those beautiful moments in which, even though I had my camera, I let my eyes take it in instead.
