Thank you Berend. I can understand your desire to cast for trout. I sure hope you catch some! My exploration of this area was sheer joy, for it is so majestic, so colourful and so beautiful.

Hola Jorge. It is a picturesque valley indeed and there were many places that invited one to stop and sit and appreciate the world!!

Warm regards from Auckland, NZ.

Dear Nick,

I very much appreciate your thoughts, especially today as I have been sharing with New Zealanders who are dealing with the traumatic impact of the Christchurch quake, at the same time as Sendai Japan has been devastated by a quake 8000 times more powerful than Christchurch's quake accompanied by the distastrous and monstrous tsunami and many huge aftershocks.

Yet there is much that is stable and predictable, much that is beautiful and serene in our world as well.

But greater than that there is love and understanding to enable empathy and supportive responses.

So thanks for the affirmations.

Thank you Jeff. Colorado is appropriately named for there is so much colour in the landscape. This a beautiful area.
