Sometimes... you need to take a step back or two to see the bigger picture... and realize how limited your original perspective was... (I almost jumped in joy at this insight, but luckily I realized that I was standing on a narrow dike... and that I may not land exactly where I took off <g>)
Still, I can't complain. Good things come to those who seek, and I thought I had witnessed more than a mortal's share of beauty on this trip. So if one day you get that urge to feast your eyes and/or refresh your soul, a road trip through our own Cordilleras may be exactly what the doctor ordered. Enjoy.
(Pixel-peepers: The dikes were so narrow that there was only one place I could stand the entire time night turned into day. I wished there was more space to be creative, but sometimes you just have to take what's dealt to you.)
