Superb! Reminds me a lot of Colorado where our eldest daughter lives. Love each of these, but esp. the bear! In fact, I'm so excited I can barely stand it!

Sorry.

Your quotes are also very thought-provoking. I'm so provoked already I may have to go back to bed! ;-))

Being a Dutchman from the flat lowlands I always love to see mountains. These are great shots of those big mountains under the clear blue sky.
Enjoy your weekend, Sylvia.

The bear is cute, but that wonderful wildflower meadow is my favorite this time!

I love the wildflowers seemingly growing right out of the rocks. And what a cute bear, though I wouldn't want to get too close!

I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
