I Won't Grow Up

We planted this tree twenty five years ago. It never got bigger, but it's still alive.

When we got here the snow was pinkish as were all the windows because a red dust storm had passed through a few weeks ago, but now we've been getting a lot of rain and snow on the mountains.

The wild iris are coming into bloom. Today we saw three different elk herds on our morning hike.

This pond is quite full right now and Molly saw an opportunity for swimming.

I like it here a lot.

That must be a bonsai tree! It's fun seeing the piece of Molly in that photo.

And so funny to see her swimming. It cracks me up that she looks so serious, but you know she's having the time of her life.

What does the air smell like there?

It looks and sounds so beautiful and peaceful. I want to find that peaceful place Fabiola talks about... ha!

I thought I left a comment but I don't see it here, so here's a recap.

I thought the wee tree looked like a bonsai too. What kind of tree is it? Is it one of those bristlecone pines that live for a zillion years?

The wild irises are lovely. I didn't know there was such a thing.

Looks like Molly likes it there a lot too!

It's a blue spruce tree. We got a whole bunch of little starter trees from the forest service long ago. They were packed in test tubes. The others have all grown up well, but this one just likes it tiny.
