So much to be thankful for …

Every couple of weeks or so, my son and I have a burger night, and we're always trying to fine-tune our recipe to come up with best-ever. I don't remember if this made the top ten, but it sure looks good. I'm so thankful for my family and loved ones and the fun we have together.

SUMMIT COUNTY — Scrolling through the photo files last night and thinking about who might be reading Summit Voice on Thanksgiving made me realize that, nearly every time I take a picture, I have something to be thankful for, whether it’s the scenery, the gift of another sunrise, a great meal, the love of a good woman and son, or just plain getting outside and snapping photos. So I used the rapid-scroll feature on my Mac to speed through my photo files, flicking at random, then picking one image from the screen each time the scroll stopped. So this is my photographic ode to Thanksgiving. More after the break …

This wasn't the biggest mushroom of the season, but it was surely the most beautiful. Leigh and I found it the morning after camping out to watch the Perseid meteor shower. It was our only camping trip this past summer, but I was thankful for that one night - it's better than none!
A couple of the trout that Dylan and his buddy pulled out of the water right here in our Frisco backyard made me thankful for our local lakes and streams.
The summer solstice at Loveland Pass, a moment of being thankful for being alive.
Thankful for birdsong, every day -- even if it is a squawking magpie!
"Sweet the rain's new fall, sunlit from heaven / Like the first dewfall, on the first grass / Praise for the sweetness of the wet garden / Sprung in completeness where his feet pass." ~ Cat Stevens
Life in the High Country. Be thankful every day!
