of mountains and frozen lakes...

“We are now in the mountains and they are in us,
kindling enthusiasm, making every nerve quiver, filling every pore and cell of us.” 
John Muir
A morning drive lead us here...
...onto a frozen mountain lake, next to majestic beauty.  

 And then here... onto wooded paths.
It was a gorgeous day... the last before the dreadful cold made it`s way to us. There was sunshine and warmth, though the breeze held a chill. And we decided to make our way west to the mountains. They never disappoint. Ever welcoming, they call to us and then hold us tightly.

This year I make no resolutions... other than coming to my mountains more often.
And breathing in every bit of life they offer me.
