If you’ve glanced at the weather report recently, you may have noticed that Colorado is covered in one big cloud that’s sticking around through tomorrow. It’s wet and grey, and if we don’t look out, we could be carried off by a flash flood. This is a complete 180 from earlier in the week when our days were warm and sunny. On one of those nice days, we went for a hike in Chautauqua. Starting up the the trail and watching the line of hikers both in front of and behind you always makes me laugh. Going for a hike, at least close to the city, is not the peaceful, solitary activity it was when we lived in PA, but once you get up into the trees and the trails branch off, the crowds thin out. They never completely disappear, but you can begin to hear yourself think. I’m not complaining about the crowds, because it’s nice to be surrounded by so many like-minded people, but I still haven’t gotten used to it. That said, after about a year of living here, it was nice to get up to Chautauqua again (we didn’t do much hiking here throughout the winter), and this time have it feel so familiar and like home, as opposed to feeling like I was on vacation in CO, which is what I felt like for so long after having moved here. Has that happened to you? You move to a place that’s so different from where you grew up, that you can’t quite shake the feeling that you’re just on vacation? It’s also slightly strange to me that Alex and Luc are going to grow up in a landscape that’s wildly different form the one I grew up in.
