Paradise Found

It's interesting how the Universe leads us to where we need to be. 
Hubby and I were headed out to explore an area in the mountains southwest of Denver. We dropped over Kenosha Pass into South Park (yes,there really is a South Park) when we encountered a ground blizzard (blowing snow). We decided that wasn't something we wanted to contend with - neither at that current moment in time nor at any time in the future - so we headed east to explore some uncharted territory. We ended up on the back side of Pikes Peak. 

Pikes Peak
There was something about the region that felt like home. And sure enough! We found it. 
Our little slice Paradise.   
It had all the makings of an enchanted forest. 
Interesting rock formations.

Gnarly Trees.

Natural Bonsai Trees.

More Gnarly Trees. Covered in Moss.

And incredible views from the top of the ridge.

I can imagine what adventures await us here!

You will indeed be living in paradise! Speaking of Pike's Peak, it's going to figure into my blog post next Saturday in somewhat of a surprising way. That's all I'm saying for now.
