Took the dogs out for a hike yesterday. Haven’t hiked since… July? And it was much needed. It wasn’t much; about 3 flat miles on the trail closest to my house, but it was enough. It’s so easy for me to yearn to hike but my schedule keeps me so busy and my anxiety keeps me feeling guilty if I am doing anything other than working.
So needless to say it was extremely therapeutic. I needed it so much. My stress washed away and the world became simple and clear. The dogs were happy and carefree. It was a beautiful warm day for late October.

Many people say Colorado is ugly this time of the year, all brown and yellow. I feel sad for those who think green is the only beautiful color. I thought the views were just as beautiful as ever.

Sorry for the phone photos, I didn’t bring my camera along this time!
