Today we woke up in Colorado Springs and Mr. Univeese drove me around to see where he grew up…some of his old stomping grounds…meet some of his oldest and dearest friends…to experience ‘his’ Colorado.
His friends are as lovely as the views. They were cordial…charming…personable…real.
After socializing we made our way to Manitou’s Cliff House to drop off our bags…change clothes…and venture out to hike part of Barr Trail in the the foothills of Pike’s Peak.
With Pike’s Peak as the back drop, it doesn’t get more breathtaking…but I feel that way about so much of this area.
And now, we’re sitting on porch of Cliff House…sharing some wine…enjoying a gentle breeze…gazing at the mountains. Life is good…too good to be writing about it and not fully engrossed in the moment.
