A mountain goat photographed yesterday in Ten Mile canyon ( I-70 west of Frisco near Officers Gulch)
How wonderful it is to wake up every day and see so much of nature’s miracles. It’s just one more reason I love living here. I have a secret hike I can usually see these wonderful creatures on, and a jeep trip up to 14,000 feet that we have seen a herd of these miraculous creatures. But were is the goat wash? If I left my white pup outside to live, he sure wouldn’t look this clean.

If the front page of every newspaper could start your day this happy

We’d be living in a better world. Richard Seeley , a photographer for the Summit Daily shot this photo that was on the cover of this mornings newspaper. A mother eagle feeding her tiny baby that looks smaller than a baby chicken. To live in Summit County is to live in a world that is so far removed from the ugly world beyond. How lucky we are all to share such a magnificent place.
