There is a mountain I see every time I go grocery shopping in Conifer, Colorado. The base of it literally goes all the way down to the back of this grocery store. While I still wait for the above-normal snow pack in the high country to melt a little more (most in 30 years in some places), I can’t pass up the opportunity to climb a mountain so close to home. This one is called Berrian Mountain.
CURRENT THOUGHTS…My opinion of my country and humanity took a serious hit lately. Was I surprised? Not really. I've never thought that highly of our species, and the United States has never been as great as it should be. Unfortunately, there isn't one damn thing this next version of our government is planning on doing in the next four years that will change that. Too much of our populace is blind to what is really important, and there are few leaders, teachers, and parents who are enlightened enough to help the rest of us understand. Our leadership has failed, and we have failed ourselves. God help us all. In the meantime our culture can suck it as far as I'm concerned. I have no desire to watch this train wreck, or be a part of it. I've stopped watching the TV news, and I'm only concerned with bettering myself and being a shining light in whatever environment I enter. No time for being lazy, no time for being ignorant, and no room or tolerance for the darkness that is looming over all of us.
