Nothing like starting the day off with a hot cup of coffee on a cool morning while sitting out on the deck… especially with a view like this!
What a perfect start to our last day in the mountains. Chilling out, sipping a mug of hot coffee, enjoying the quiet that is only broken up by the sound of hummingbirds flying a few feet from my head, and savoring the view of the mountains in the distance. What made it even more serene was the sight of both the mountain we climbed yesterday, Quail Mountain, and the mountain I’ll be back to climb one day, Mount Massive. My eyes slowly shifted focus from one to another and then to the rest of the range in front of me.
I didn’t have a book. I only used my phone to take a photo. I didn’t listen to music. I simply sat and existed in the presence of the majestic behemoths in front of me. It was perfect. Another moment I’ll hold in my souls for eternity.
