Design and Nature, OK I Really Just Want to Show You My Vacay Pics!



Warning:  
This post is filled with beautiful nature 
photos that have nothing to do 
with design, or do they?  
I think Frank Lloyd Wright 
would agree with me.  
But, if you don't enjoy nature pics 
then this post will not appeal to you in the least.  

It is always great to take a break 
from the everyday and enjoy some downtime.  
That's what vacations are for right?  
To recharge and get a new perspective!  
And what better way 
to do that then enjoy nature 
on a fantastic hike.  
We took a fun hike today 
on the Lily Pad Hiking 
trail in Summit County, Colorado.  
It was about five miles 
total which is just about right for me.  
There were lots of beautiful ponds 
and streams along the way.  
My photos don't truly capture 
how lovely it really was.  
This peaceful pond was hidden by trees and bushes. 
A small stream flowing into it.  
I love the sound of a running stream.
How serene is this?
We crossed bridges 
with more streams running under them. 
How perfect is nature?
I don't think I could ever get tired of hiking.

We spotted Mr. Beaver on some rocks.  
And we finally came upon the Lily Pond.  


Seeing this makes it totally worth the hike!
Mr. Beaux and I posing in front of the pond.  
Right beyond the pond 
was another secluded lake.  
Mr. Beaux took this photo of a Bald Eagle.  
He was hanging out in the trees 
and some cute little dogs barked 
at him and he showed off for us 
by circling a few times around the lake.

 We headed back on the trail. 
But not before I took a few more 
shots of the gorgeous lily pads.  

Until Next Time,
Beaux R'eves

I always marvel at the differences in nature among the many places I travel. From state to state or country to country, each place has it's own version of "beauty." So happy to see your photos.

Our family loves Colorado! My husband and I have done that trail twice to Lily Pad Lake! Beautiful, but one of those hikes we got caught in a hailstorm! Yikes!

I so remember when hiking in Colorado that you cannot truly capture the beauty around you...however, you got some great pics!
