Wednesday..White, Watery, Outdoors and Wordless


OutdoorWednesdaylogo554444
~White Wednesday

The heat..
relentless..
it is on everyones mind..
and how to beat it..
Temperatures soar here on the valley floor..
But..
there is relief to be had..
in the icy mountain streams..
pools below cascading waterfalls..
and Colorado has such an array..
many just a short hike away.























































But first....
one must get there...
up into the mountains..
where even in summer,,
there is SNOW...

























waterfalls..
white cascades..
resemble bridal veils...
and often in these romantic settings..

















proposals are made..
and accepted..
and a mountain wedding is the obvious choice.
Some weddings are held in meadows of summer wildflowers..

















Others are on mountain top vistas
.































where sometimes the wind can be quite blustery..
and there is always that special bouquet..

















Please join these other sites for ore Wednesdays..

Stay cool..Keep hydrated!!
Enjoy your day!!

  5. How Romantic!
    I just bet my daughters would hate a wedding in the mountains because they were raised here.
    But I would have loved it twenty or so years ago.

    Looks like you're making the transition from seashore to mountains seamlessly. Those are some grand photos!

  14. Hi Sandi,

    So nice to meet you Sandi when you came to visit me this morning on my blog and to want to enter my giveaway I am having. You said in your comment that you were following me but I have looked and looked and have not found you there. Please come back and sign up as a follower so you can be counted in with the rest for my giveaway.
    It looks like you and me have some things in common. I was born in Florida and stayed there till I was 9yrs. My parents and I moved to Denver where I grew up and had two of my children there. Although now I live in Georgia so you can call me a Southern Mermaid Mountain Girl!!!!

    It was so nice to meet you and please come back to become one of my followers!!

    Hugs and Smiles,

    Susan

  15. Hi Loui, I just found you at Becky's place(Holiday in the Sun)and immediately knew I had to check you out-so glad i did. I moved up north of you, near Fort Collins, two years ago from Ca. I used to be in banking too. Loved your photos. I'm not ready for fall but friends on the Front Range keep seeing signs of an early fall-hopefully it won't be the winter we had last year.
    I'm going to follow you neighbor. Have a great weekend, looks gorgeous out!

welcome to my world of salty sunkissed breezes..
where time is not measured..
linger leisurely..
sift sugary white sand between your toes..
Make and take those wonderful memories..
leaving behind..only your footprints...
