Maybe it’s a bit of a cliche, but the hustle and bustle of the everyday blinds us to those things that might, in calmer moments, impress and delight us. In the course of my doing my job, I came across a few pics that, for me, brought exactly that idea to the fore:

Garden of the Gods, Colorado.  Trying to pin more stateside locations, since a European tour is ever so slightly out of my $1.57 budget. :P

In the final analysis, I wonder if maybe I have difficulty leaving a place that tricks us residents into believing, from time to time, that it is a novel and unexplored landscape, as if we’ve both lived here for decades, and have never seen it before.
