An Observation

Hiawatha Lake

There seems to be a correlation between the increase in my age and a decrease in  sunrise images and increase of sunsets images. Now at Momo Lolos coffeehouse and listening to a pianist and flutist duet. Love the change from the piped music we find most of the time.

Family and community are an essential part of my life as well as my solitude. There are some who avoid solitude, finding it uncomfortable. And, there are some who avoid communities, finding it uncomfortable. I need both. Community and fellowship helps me to appreciate the solitude and quiet. While the solitude and quiet help me appreciate community.

Red Feather Lakes comprises the village which has three small general stores, an Ace hardware store, an outdoor sports shop, a community library, small antique store, and post office. There are several rustic mountain restaurants in the community. It also has several small lakes in close proximity of Red Feather Lakes Village.Dowdy Lake, Parvin Lake, West Lake, and Lake Bellaire are open to the public and maintained by Colorado State Wildlife Areas. There are eight private lakes within the Village that require a membership to access.

I stayed with my friend Don at his rustic cabin. He has had this cabin for the past 16 years and uses it for a sanctuary to get away from the busyness of the city. On Wednesday evening we drove to a couple lakes for any opportunities for sunset reflections in the lakes. Overcast skies and rain fell throughout the day. After eating BBQ chicken from the grill we noticed a break in the clouds with the possibility for some color and reflections. I think that’s what we got.

Watering the Aspens

Elf Lane (also known as “Gnome Road”) is mountain trail in the quaint village of Red Feather Lakes, Colorado. The trail is a quarter-mile long between Lake Hiawatha and Lake Apache.

As you enter Elf Lane, there is a sign posted on a tree that reads: “PLEASE Do not take us, Break us, or Relocate us As We Live Here on ELF Lane to Watch over children and All the Little Animals.” As we walked the trail we found ceramic little characters; elves, gnomes, spiders, Elmo, angels, SpongBob, SquarePants, and many more. The little character who caught my eye was busy watering the aspen tree. 🙂
