As I'm reading through the post, I get to the bottom and see who she has tagged, and what do ya know? I was tagged! My first thought? "Oh @%&!".
Anyway, I spent some time going through photos, trying to find one that I am really proud of, one that says something about me and who I am. As it turns out, I really enjoyed looking through all of those old photos. It took a while, but here is what I finally decided on (I actually was only able to narrow it down to three, but they are all from the same place):
In July 2007, I found myself in my favorite little mountain town, Estes Park, Colorado (have I shared with you that my dream is to sell the shack and live here eventually?). My favorite activity when I am in Estes Park is to go hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park. The beauty of God's creation is breathtaking! I love this picture of this beautiful, calm mountain lake.
Here's another view in Rocky Mountain National Park, taken once I had gone above tree line. There is a storm rolling in, and we didn't get to finish our hike to the Continental Divide that I had my heart set on (I had my heart more set on not getting struck by lightning when the time came to make the decision to get back below tree line!). I love the way that the lighting is in this photo.
And of course, I couldn't post pictures of the mountains without including my favorite mountain town! Here is a little bit of Estes Park. To the left of the photo is the tourist downtown area, and if you enlarge the photo by clicking on it, you'll see the Stanley Hotel just above the hill in the center of the photo. (It's the large white building with the red roof.) The Stanley Hotel was the inspiration for the Overlook Hotel in Steven King's The Shining. The television miniseries of The Shining was filmed at the Stanley in 1997. The Stanley was also the "Hotel Danbury" in Dumb and Dumber.
Now it's my turn to pass the meme to five other bloggers!
I chose the following:
Richard at The Bewildered Brit
Lisa at Atomic Tea Party
Maria at Shallow Thoughts from Iowa
MidCenturyMadam at Mid Century Madness
Stan at The Elegant Thrifter
and as an extra, just to be mischievous:
Mick at Everyone Goes to Mick's even though he has already been tagged, I'm doing it because he can't upload pictures to his blog at the moment. Tee Hee!
