we flew to our paradise in record time and even brought jackson
who was a good little flier.   after stocking up on groceries, airing
out the condo, and unpacking we are now joyfully in mountain
mode.



hans and i took an hour long walk yesterday, which is a little
adventurous for our first day at this 9,000 foot height.  it ensured
a really good night's sleep, though.

he surprised me with a new camera, and i am having so much fun
in this gorgeous environment.  every way i turn, i see something
glorious.  i, of course, have no idea what i'm doing, but do know
that practice makes perfect.

happy fourth of july!  in a few days, i will post some photos of
crested butte's fun parade and fireworks' display.

love,
lea

"i will lift up my eyes to the hills-
where does my help come from?
my help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth."

I don't really need photos becuase your words are always so delightful ... however I do love the mountains of Colardo so won't say no so seeing photos too.
Psalm 121 ... it's hard not to think of that among such majesty. Have a great time with your new camera.

For July 4, I went down to the church in the city to hear Mt San Antonio choir who were visiting. They were very good.
