Fall Time in the Rockies

Castle Rock, CO

I have had a very cool day!  The Lord surprised me today by leading me beside quiet waters…in the mountains…at my favorite fishing spot!  I wasn’t expecting to drive up there today!  I had to dump a bunch of old wood and pallets at the Sedalia landfill today, but afterwards the Lord gave me the nudge to go up into the mountains.  I had my good Canon camera with me, so I did, and it ended up being a great trip!  I got some of the best pictures I have ever taken up there!  I’ve been praising the Lord all day!

First, let me show you what I did this morning, then I will take you up into the Rockies.  This post will be mostly pictures, enjoy!

See my wood pallets! Here he comes to get them! Only cost me $72 to unload 180 pounds of wood! That price is good up to 2,000 lbs.

The Sedalia Landfill was great! Very clean! They don’t take any food or trash like that. Just industrial debris mostly. It didn’t even stink! Thanks guys!

Now let’s head up into the Rockies shall we?  Okay, let’s go!

Hello Everyone! God bless you all!

I hope you enjoyed your trip to the Rockies in September!  I am planning on going up much higher towards Winter Park in October to take pictures of the changing Aspen trees!  I pray I get the chance to go!  Today was awesome!

Pretty day 9-24-18
Back home at Ryan’s!  I took this picture a few days ago on 9-24-18.  See the bumpy ridge straight ahead out west?  That is where you just were!

I hope and pray those quiet waters of the Rocky Mountains were a blessing to you!

Grace and peace to you all!

“…he leads me beside quiet waters, he restores my soul.”

Psalm 23:2

      1. Yes, do! The absolute best time to be up there. They would love it! Make sure you get a picture of Heather and yourself together, and then of the 4 of you. You are so lucky to be so close to the mountains!
