Ranch running

While there are countless things I love about my annual pilgrimage to the beloved Triangle X Ranch, one of my most treasured times is my morning run.   Mornings are just. the. best.  

I have always loved mornings- watching the world wake up, having space and time and quiet to myself- but it's on a whole other level out west with the grand display of light as the sun rises turns the mountains from gray to pink to blue.  The air is cool and crisp and truly the best way to wake up!

The horses are usually coming at this time so it's always a treat to watch them run up the driveway in all their grandness.

The last day at the ranch my sister joined me for some of the fun and her husband Phil captured a few fun photos.  While they will never truly capture the experience, it's a nice reminder of such a sacred time and space.
