As my time in Ouray draws to a close for this summer, I’ve started to reflect on my last 2 months. While I cannot recap everything or remember some of the best moments (I will come up with a list at some point), the overwhelming feeling I’ve had during my stay here is that of true happiness. As I sit here typing this, I can honestly say I’ve never been happier. As long as I continue to live each day here to the fullest and to focus on the moment, I can’t help but have a smile on my face. Yesterday I set out from the house and headed for Imogene Pass, where I could see Telluride way down below. Not wanting to get caught in a lightning storm, I scurried down the mountain as I was being chased by the storm. While I never got any lightning (I heard plenty of thunder), I got plenty of cool rain that made my run great. I found myself splashing through creeks and hopping down the trail. Happy, yes, I was truly happy. Life is so simple here. This place is magical, and I will be back, hopefully sooner than later.
