Woke up to a beautiful view of the mountains outside our window this morning.  Sunny and warm.  We drove to Bear Lake in the Rocky Mountain National Park and I found a lovely spot to set up and paint.  After painting for a few hours, we drove the park and stopped at as many of the points of interest as we could fit in to a day.  All we can say is "WOW!"  The "size" of what we saw was so unbelievable.  In pictures it's hard to really grasp how vast and wide and majestic it really is.  It takes your breath away.  How refreshing it is to get away from all that man has made and gaze on the beauty of God's creation.  Painting outside gives such an opportunity to "be still" for more than a minute and really see it...and hear it...and even the smells of the aspen.  What a gift.  We drove from Bear lake all the way to the top of the mountains, up where the snow is.  It was beautiful.
 I had a little chipmunk climb up my arm and also sit on my shoe.  We saw moose up pretty close, some unusual and beautiful birds.  Tomorrow we will visit Monarch Lake and I will paint some more if the weather is good, then we will head out to my Aunt Vicki's in Grand Junction.
So that was our adventure for today!
He was very friendly!
