Rio Grande view

Looking down at the Rio Grande

Here you go. Out into the cold, clean air for a thirty-seventh anniversary hike. The trail was rough, up and down with large rocks to step around and plenty of holes to break your leg. “I’m not going up there,” she said, at an uphill section that resembled a barely-groomed rock slide, but she did. After about a mile, we hiked down the hill to a nearby paved road to have an easier walk back to the car. There was virtually no traffic, but it was freezing. We marched along the empty asphalt in the shade of the cliffs as the sun went down.

      And we were together for several years before that. It is a most amazing thing.

    Lovely photo, as are all. You are lucky to have such a gutsy wife. She is the best.

      Gutsy, talented, and beautiful. Her faith and goodwill toward me are unending.

    Beautiful picture! Happy anniversary, that sounded like a great way to celebrate. She’s a brave one! Not only to climb a trail but put up with you for so long! Ha! Just joking. Congrats!

      Perfectly all right to “joke,” because that’s absolutely true.
