I can’t believe we only have a few days left. Where’s the time gone?  We’ve had lots of great rides, seen moose and deer, reveled in all the flowers, hiked, watched the horse, and sat on the porch relaxing.  That’s what I was planning to do tonight, but it looks like it might be a pretty sunset.  Let’s head up to the top of the hill and see what it looks like.

Phew, the air at 7,000′ has a lot less oxygen than where I live! I’m huffing and puffing like the horses do when we ride up these steep slopes, but now we’re doing the work of the horses.  Thankfully, we don’t have saddles and people on our backs!

Oh, my goodness! Look at that!  It was worth the climb. Look at the colors in the sky.

It’s so quiet except for the munching of the horses eating.  I’m not sure why these some of them keep coming near us.  Maybe they think we have food.  But I’m too busy being overwhelmed by the sky to pay attention.  Now look at the colors!!

I’m without words..   Each time we look, it’s more spectacular.

What a show, but now it’s over.  We both walk silently back to the cabin, reliving the stunning views we just enjoyed.  Quite the sendoff!

I see that today Ben at WordPress is featuring the theme “Glorious.”  I think this definitely fits as well as for Jo’s Monday Walk.  Cheers!

    That totally fits the theme, Janet. What a wonderful sequence. Thanks for sharing these beautiful scenes with us.

    It’s definitely your happy place, Janet! 🙂 🙂 Thank you for a glorious evening stroll.

    • My pleasure, Jo. So glad you could come along. The horses are probably wondering what a large herd of humans are doing up there! But it doesn’t seem to bother them or interrupt their eating.

  4. Janet, that was a nice farewell for you: gorgeous.

  5. Absolutely gorgeous and probably worth the huffing and puffing to get up there 🙂

    Thanks for taking us up to see this fantastic sunset, Janet. Enjoyed the nod to the elevation and breathless hiking, this is a striking surprise when we’re not at our usual elevation. Gorgeous scenery and photos.

    Astonishing. Views like that make the word “awesome” truly appropriate.

  8. Oh what a hill, and view! It was glorious! I think it’s neat that the horses came near you to be part of that beautiful and memorable send off.

    • I was up there a few other times when the horses were out and once when I started back down, a group followed me for some distance before realizing, I guess, that they didn’t have to come in and grazing would be much more fun. 🙂 It truly was a glorious sigh, each moment seemingly better than the previous one.
