“If you think adventure is dangerous, try routine. It’s lethal.” – Paulo Coelho
The second part of our trip to Mount Evans is dedicated to the descent. Witnessing the seemingly endless mountains from 14,000 ft up is truly magical.
We took a short walk on this path and wow; I can’t believe this view. Looking back at these photos from Mount Evans a year later, it reminds me of how at peace I feel when I’m in nature. I’m happier, calmer, and more myself when I’m in a beautiful place with no traffic noise, just peace.
Another adorable marmot!
As we were driving towards the base of the mountain, I saw a lone marmot while and made Rueben pull over so I can take pictures of it. I wasn’t close at all, but he could hear me coming and didn’t stick around very long!

Needless to say, we truly enjoyed Mount Evans, and yes – Rueben loved it!
What gives you peace? Is it mountains and trees? Palm trees and the beach? A book and a cup of tea? I’d love to know your ‘zen’ place!
