Telluride, Colorado is one of the prettiest places on the planet. It feels like I’ve gone to the Alps, but it’s only eight hours away. This picture was taken back in 2015. It reminds me it’s time for a revisit. Maybe next fall…
This was the first time I had seen a Cardinal whose plumage looked like he was wearing a red cowl. He was one of the common, visual treats found on the island of Kaui from last summer’s visit.
With a heavy heart, I regret to post that my walking-buddy for the last seven years was put down yesterday. He had a cancerous tumor that appeared a couple months ago on his shoulder and spread quickly. He was my son’s dog. Too hot in Phoenix and too many hours spent in law school, he asked if I’d watch Bear for him. I live up in Northern Arizona where it is much cooler. I agreed. Best decision of my life.
This morning was my first walk without him, and I must say, I’m beyond dejected.
