 In the early days of "mud season" in the Vail Valley, you can still slog your way through the sticky clay mud at the bottom of a trail and make your way onto the slushy snowpack. 
There is something magical about hiking in the deep snow with bare shoulders.
 It's one of my favorite times of year...but here in Colorado there are a lot of times of year to love ;)
 Thowing sticks with Mathilda.
 Pausing to contemplate in a favorite spot.
Q ensconced in her favorite spot, lounging in the sun motes on the couch in the condo!


  1. I never noticed that Q sucked her thumbs but I see it now on many images. It is so cute! I love the picture of you sitting on the rocks, so lovely and peaceful.

  2. Yes, she sucks her first two fingers when she is tired. It's a sure sign. If you ever wonder whether she's ready to fall asleep, just watch for the fingers to wander toward her mouth!
