Heads or Tails



This weeks "Heads or Tails" meme theme is "Peace or Piece". For this week I think I'll chose the former, Peace.

I'll start by telling you about part of the trip Skittles and I took a few weeks ago. We went to see the Rocky Mountains. What a beautiful sight they were indeed. There were several places that were so "peace"ful that we were just awestruck by it. The one that really comes to mind though was on the road that takes you to see the Royal Gorge. On this road which twists and turns up the mountains to get to the gorge there were several places where you could pull your car over and have a picnic. These places had picnic benches and beautiful scenery. We stopped at one to have lunch before going on to the gorge. When we got out of the car we beheld some very pretty scenes. You could look out from our vantage point and see many mountains surrounding the area. The other thing that struck us was the quietness there. There wasn't any sound other than the wind or the very seldom passing car. It was just so "peace"ful there that it made you want to stay forever.

That's my post for this week. I wish you could all have been there (not at the same time mind you lol) so you could enjoy it for yourselves. Till next time BYE!!

As you described what you saw, I saw it too. It must've been stupendous. I bet the mountain streams were perfect.

Sounds like a lovely peaceful vacation. I hope to see the Rockies one day. I've only seen them from a plane.

Sounds like a wonderful trip. How lucky we are that there are still places undamaged by those who would destroy them for oil or coal or other things that are ultimately so much less precious.
