The Cottonwood Trail

Truly one of my favorite places on the planet.

This trail weaves along a creek lined by big Cottonwood trees.
People walk this, bike this, run this, and in my case, during my pregnancy, waddled this trail. Some walk along in silence taking in the beauty of the surrounding farm lands or the vistas of the Flatirons,
others engage in long conversations, while others, better still, will
walk this trail reading a novel at the same time!
It's one of those places on Earth that
gives you peace no matter the season or the time of day.
The dog in this picture is a
wonderful Lab named Levi who is near and dear to my heart.
Til the day I die, I will retreat in my mind to the wonderful twists and turns of this trail to find peace and solitude deep within my soul.
