The mountains rise at every turn as we wind our way around and up thru the endless wooded views. Which direction are we facing? I don't know, but landmarking is necessary to measure how much longer it will take to reach our road. Food shopping is a day trip, and forgotten items on our list become costly mistakes in gas money! Can't be in denial...we don't live anywhere near a Walmart! If we can live with and respect the distance, it will work. I love the remoteness...and the quiet....But 6AM is my favorite time..and what can top getting lost in an early dawn sunrise...firey, pink or aqua over a black mountain that is other times misty, blue or grey. Yesterday the clouds at that time were amazing pink and blue snow drifts against a glowing orange sky. Another awesome work of art by the Mighty Author Himself!
