  1. “Finally some clouds…” I understood that very well. ๐Ÿ™‚ Another gorgeous series, and I’m so glad the clouds cooperated with you. The Mary Oliver poem hit home with me.

    • And about time, I’d say (with the clouds). Haven’t really seen any since either. Mary Oliver’s stuff has been hitting me right smack between the eyes lately.

    • Picturing thongs growing…. ๐Ÿ˜€ It truly was a magical place. I can imagine it with snow on the peaks, but wouldn’t want to have to deal with driving in the white stuff.
