Over the next several days, I’ll be venturing forth into the proverbial wilderness of my home state of Colorado. There is a particular wilderness hike/backpacking trip that I have not been on in over a decade. The hike takes one up to the highest hot springs in North America, elevation 11,200′ then over a pass at nearly 13,000′ then on down through a valley of wildflowers flanked by what are some of the most beautiful mountains I know, the Maroon Bells (see picture).
Hope all readers also have an opportunity to jump off the grid this summer to spend time with family, friends and themselves. Such a break, at least for me, always give one perspective that can not be obtained when one is consistently, dare I say obsessively, connected to all things digital.
