It was a new to me view. The climb was only about 22 stories cut short by my fatigue. I was already 69 stories into a hike down from Clementine. Thus making the end total for that day 100 stories/floors 1200 ft elevation gain. For novice trail gal (me) that was a lot and a goal achieved. January 14th, 2018. It’s beautiful to look up and be so alive. (The whole point of being out there is to live and feel alive). It was also very cool (magnificent) to see the perspective of previous hikes on the other side base to top. It was a chance taken on a random trail....be brave, take courage and feel alive. New views and a different angle of the sun on my face. I feel grateful. Thank you God and Earth🌞

Next time add wine to the sauce and skip celery salt. My roast was 2.25 lbs. The tips that I had read online said that after the 15 minutes time at high heat temp, to figure about 20 mins per lb. (I think this was a good tip for a medium rare roast). I think the meat looks more red in my pictures than in actual reality.

as the beautiful canyons are the cracks of the earth, broken humans are beautiful,
healing humans are like the mended breaks in pottery as the glue dries,
to wound a healing soul is like stepping on a weary small child,
as their wounds bleed out, do not give up, God has not forgotten them,
as the Great Teacher reminds us, "Love each other as I have loved you."

It was a beautiful cold jog/hike by Folsom Lake, CA.
The big sky, drought, flood, receding shore and smooth quiet water left a stark beauty to a familiar landscape.
Many familiar decades of my life spent here and it is the same and yet ever changing.
Today another view, temperament, effect. Nature shows off her changes, wounds and pours out beauty.
Let us be like nature and flower and be beautiful, under all the effects and changes of life.***sorry about the poor editing, tired before bed. Edited about 10 times for clarity. True story. HAPPY NEW YEAR. Love Toni
