On September 28th, 2015, I took a personal leave day from work. I needed this more than I can even describe. I have attached a link to the pictures from the day, but I want to tell you this. It was more beautiful than I can describe, more beautiful than the pictures can show. It has meaning to me in ways I cannot describe. I remember going to this place as a young kid, we would leave before the sun came up, just like I did on this day. I remember the smell, and it still smells like this today, when you get off of I-70 at Wolcott, you can smell the local vegetation, mixed with horse sweat, is about the best way I can describe it. It is natural, clean, and smells like the mountains should. Once on the road up toward Yamcolo Reservoir, the aspen were glorious. I have never been there this late in the year, as we used to go in the early summer when I was a kid. It is hard to describe the beauty, it gives me goose bumps just re-thinking how goergous it actually was. I also loved how it smelled, not just the local vegetation, but you could smell the aspen, like a huge pile of leaves waiting to be jumped into. Autumn was in the air, but it was oh so much more. I felt as if my God above was treating me to an extra special glimpse of what He can do, and does for each of us daily. I don’t know why I had this surreal feeling, but it was one of those moments that will not easily be forgotten.
