Getaway

Well, Nick and I have been in Angel Fire, NM for a couple of days now without the girls. They are having a blast a Papa and Grammy's house in Colorado Springs!

Today we headed in to Taos and have landed at a great little coffee shop here. I had to post a link to the place we just visited. It is called El Monte Sagrado. Man, if you ever want a really nice getaway in New Mexico, this is the place. I personally could never spend the money to stay there, but if you stay in Taos, then you definitely need to walk around the grounds! It's beautiful.

Speaking of beautiful.... I LOVE the Fall. There are still many Aspen trees doing their thing! I mean that bright yellow dance they do before they are left bare for the winter. I can't stop staring at them. There is such life represented in the death of each leaf.

Yesterday, we took a walk around the area where we are staying. It was interesting to follow fresh bear tracks more than half of our walk. It got me thinking about God's Sovereignty. I wondered if we were not being wise walking around in an area where clearly bears roam. But, this is our vacation and if we don't get out of that cabin then we could go crazy. So we go to explore the heights of the mountain we were on. I played with words in my head. "Young Couple Attacked by a Brown Bear." Needless to say, we survived and are having an incredible time!
