I'm really missing the mountains these days. Although they lay west of us and I can see them from our house if it wasn't for the trees I'm really wanting to spend a day there.
I consider myself very fortunate, now that I'm retired and I can stay out of the rat race but these days life is heavy on us - you feel it, too, probably.
In the mountains I almost feel like that's another world, a world free from all the things that weigh us down here in the flat lands. The air is pure in the mountains and full of the aroma of pine and sagebrush. They beckon but right now there's too much snow up there. But after the 15th of June the hills will be covered with lupine and sunflowers and I'm going to be there. Diane
