The Lens-Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Tina. Says she: “…many of us have found ways to cope with those restrictions through our efforts to maintain our creativity.”
Creativity is not my forte. I feel like I should have been busier these last five months of isolation. I’ve been lazy, doing what I do best. Fortunately, we are retired and have not lost jobs, unfortunately, we are older and in a very high-risk age group.
We have been fortunate to get out many times while still keeping our distance for health’s sake. In June we visited Colorado wine country with friends, having superb wine and appetizers in the vineyards of world famous Stone Cottage Cellars, Paonia, CO.
In July we visited Summit County, Colorado, where we saw a madness of yellow-bellied marmots along the 9,000′ ASL Frisco to Copper hike and bike trail. I thought this unusual, as I’ve previously seen them only above the 11,000′ ASL local tree line, relaxing in rock and scree.
In Breckenridge we took the Peak 10 chairlift up to 11,000′ to do some hiking:
We walked wide, quiet roads back to the base area:
Surprisingly, very surprisingly, I’ve lost a few pounds (but only a few) due to fresh garden vegetables. For food, and friendship of course, we help a friend water her community garden. Good veggies:
I thought our local Parks and Rec department was creative and on the ball by having this dispensing machine:
I will leave you with this final shot from the garden; sunflower, bee, and blue sky:
Kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.
