when the mountains were too dangerous we headed to the lake for a picnic {part one}

1.26.2012


















what a dreamy weekend we had. lots of snow fell, which made for cozy nights with friends,
but made for a dangerous backcountry...so no skiing for us. avalanches were too sensitive for our liking.

so we headed out to the great salt lake for an afternoon picnic.
it's amazing how much contrast there is in our landscape:
one minute you can be in the aspens and pines of the snowy mountains,
and the next minute you can be on a desert island surrounded by a salty lake and open skies.

i don't think i'll ever tire of a yellow landscape nudging a blue sky...
nor will i ever tire of the quiet that resides on this island.
for all we knew we were the only ones there enjoying the sun and a good meal together.
you can't beat good bread, good soup, and hot cocoa on a crisp day.

i love little "getaways" like this...escapes into what is real in this world.

Your photos show such expansiveness. Avalanche danger is high here in CO, too. I like chilly picnics.
