Homesick for Mountains

I'm homesick for mountains today. I moved to Minnesota in the late 1970's and it is a beautiful state. We have lots of lakes, wonderful trees, very green colors, mosquitoes that could probably carry off a cow, and many birds that I adore watching. But the land is flat. Long ago it was covered by a very large glacier that squashed out the high relief. So we have river bluffs, but we don't have mountains. But I was raised in Colorado and spent my summers in the middle of the high mountains. I miss them today. So I am sharing mountain pictures from around the world with all of you today. Just pics - share the beauty.

I love Maroon Bells, they were fairly close to Aspen, where I spent most of my summers from age before memory until I was in my late teens. I miss my mountains more than I can ever truly express.

Loved your story - I can so visualize this happening. So cute!

Someday we'll have a chance to meet and exchange stories. But right now, I should probably pack for my Nebraska trip since I leave in two days and haven't really thought about what I should/can wear - LOL. I guess clothing is a low priority item for me :-)))
