🏔️ • alone in co·lo·ra·do
in the flat tops wilderness with no one else,
save for the moose and bears and marmots and robins and birds
and the ice and the snow, mud and endless glacial valleys and peaks, stars shining at night in the brilliant dark sky and satellites rotating and reflecting the sun in brilliant bursts,
precarious trails, sudden lightning storms, books to read, wet shoes (always)
, views down from the eastern mountain pass into island lakes revealing even more pristine wilderness and nested valleys and lakes and mountain tops
save for crawling up sand dunes on all fours with wind whipping sand into my eyes and fritos to eat at the very top, the sun setting over the horizon and the storm passing behind me,
with golden sunlight searing golden sand and golden corn chips,
save for everything.
