DENVER, COLORADO! Wow! Superb, Splendid, Glorious. I had the chance to drive from Estes Park down the Peak To Peak scenic pathway to Black Hawk. It was so amazing. Words can’t describe it. The only thing I could compare it to would be…a calendar. I guess I thought those amazing pictures on calendars were photoshopped somehow. Apparently not!
The pine trees were amazing, and then there’d be a bright orange deciduous tree in the middle of them. Oh! And the blue, October sky! Cliffs, boulders, streams. I drove right up on the Coors office building in Golden Colorado, apparently. A seven -story building in the middle of Rocky wilderness. Almost thought about trying one. J
I sat beside a trickling stream, and I walked by a mountain-top lake, Echo Lake. I was walking fast by that point because the scenery looked like the scenery in every bear sighting I’ve watched on TV. I found myself looking in 4 directions at once just to be sure I’d see him coming.
Longs Peak was the only really dramatic peak that I got to get a good look at, and it was dramatic. There’s something about mountains that makes you feel different...it does me, anyway.
PLUS, in Denver a attended the annual gathering of LCMC (Lutheran Congregations in Mission for Christ). We had some great teaching about the mission of the church…the mission for us as ambassadors. Great stuff. And I had the opportunity to meet a lot of very nice people from many different states…each with their own story. God’s kingdom is the place to be! No doubt about that.
My objective in going to Colorado was to seek contacts that would support ASAPH Teaching Ministry in the future. No ideas as of yet as to how successful we were in that.
