A Separate Peace – brought to you by the makers of Colorado family vacations – the C Lazy U

The nights here lately are different than I can ever remember seeing them- every evening at around 9:30pm the whole world lights up with a blue hue that is anything but subtle (it’s as if a giant blue spotlight has been turned onto the world, truly, as it becomes as bright as day when the moon appears… but bright and blue). I’m not sure what causes the phenomenon, but I can say that I’ve never seen anything quite so romantic, so peaceful; and it seems as though every living thing feels it, because it has never been quieter here either-  even the coyotes don’t howl on nights like these. If someone were to take a stroll during once of these evening, they would feel as though they were surrounded by a sea of tiny lights that is the snow catching the radiant shining moon, reflecting it’s beauty in each crystal flake that lays on the ground, shimmering contently.

I wish that pictures could capture the sight, and the feeling of nights like these, but alas, they cannot. I do know that it is nights like this that remind me how we are the best of the best when it comes to Colorado family vacations- everything has it’s place, creating an atmosphere of incandescent happiness and content, but on nights like the ones we’ve been having lately, there is an entirely separate peace that can be had here.

My entry today is short- it’s Dale’s birthday (our Operations Manager) and I have to go give him his birthday present… the opportunity to pet me (I am so giving).
