Beautiful Day

It was a great way to spend my birthday. For many years I've wanted to take Leonard to a special place to me in the Bighorns. We didn't know if we could do it because we had to go to a pretty high altitude (around 8,000 ft.) and he's on oxygen. The place isn't on the map and it's taken me years to figure out where it was. I was there as a child with my family but kids don't necessarily pay attention to landmarks when we were just wanting to get to a destination. After several years and finally talking to the right person who has been there, we found it today! This has been a personal quest and I feel so happy about it. And to spend the day in my beloved Bighorns, bouncing down a bumpy mountain road with the smell of wildflowers in the air with my sweetheart driving and my little dog on my lap is almost heaven indeed.
Above is a photo of mountain bluebirds and some larkspur.
Thanks for all of your well wishes. You're all just peaches! Diane

What a perfect day! How wonderful that you were able to find that special place and then spend your very own day there with your beloved - it doesn't get much better than that!
