  • I have been a guest at many weddings during my long time living here in Mora County. Our beautiful Catholic churches become a gentle, yet spiritual gathering place for such a very special event.

    The stained glass windows in many of them make a visit very special in many ways. I was invited to yet another very special wedding recently and this time the church, the site of this wedding was in a mountain meadow.

  • I am always grateful for our beautiful summer days, days with no wind, brilliant sun and not a cloud in the sky.

    I learned long ago to soak up a day like this as much as is possible, because winter is just around the corner. And here in our mountains the rains have come at just the right time so every flower that has a bud is now in full bloom.

    What treat it is to prowl through our high mountain meadows at this time of year! I was invited to a wedding recently and was happy to see old friends that I have known for ages from the Valmora and the Watrous area.
