“There are no wrong turnings. Only paths we had not known we were meant to walk.”
Guy Gavriel Kay
This week my husband and I are in Colorado where the air is crisp and cool and the mountains are everywhere. We had a lovely hike the other day amidst the beautiful groves of aspens – something we don’t see in South Carolina. I thought it would make a lovely abstract, so I shot it both ways. The second version follows below.
“Every new path will look fresh, even though it is old. Because we are new not the path.”
The wildflowers along the way were astounding – as they are all throughout the mountains we’ve explored. I suppose the more difficult the winter the stronger the blooms that survive. Below, an example of the way they line the path.
“Don’t look at the difficulties on your path. Focus on the opportunities ahead.”

Finally, beneath our feet, an example of some of the whispy weeds along the way – even they have their own beauty.
“Creating your own path is creating a new path for the world.”

It’s been a joy exploring the landscapes in the west, which are so different from our usual southern environment. I look forward to sharing more of our expeditions when we return. For now, click here to see what some others found Beneath Their Feet.
