We were out the door by a little after 7 o'clock this morning on our way to Parker. Mass is at 8, then a visit to Walmart and the Safeway across the way to pick up some needed groceries was on the agenda.
|There was a soft glow of color on the mountains to the|
east as we made our way out of LaPosa South.
|The "Big Tent" could be seen off to our left in the early |
morning light as we made our way north on US-95.
|There is a softness in the sky with a glow of pink|
|as we head north towards our destination.|
|There is something quietly peaceful about this ride whenever|
|we make it in the early morning light.|
|We have made the left turn at the traffic light and off to|
our right we can just see the glow of the sun below the
mountains as it makes its way up to join the day.
|I love watching the light touch the top of the mountains|
|as we continue our trek towards Parker.|
|Looking back I managed to get a picture just as the sum|
was starting to peek up over the mountains.
|We were almost to Parker when the sun had made its appearance.|

I had heard from Shirley the evening before and knew they would be here when we got back this morning. What a wonderful surprise that her and Ken made a last minute decision to join us all here for a few days.
|Pulling back in we could see Shirley and Ken talking with|
Kim and Ken. So glad you were able to make it down guys!
|The day ended with a wonderful fire.|

Thank you, Bob for supplying the wood. It was a great way to end the day watching the flames dance in the night, in the warmth of the fire's glow, enjoying conversation with friends.
Today in the United States we observe Martin Luther King Jr. Day. It is an American federal holiday marking the birthday of Martin Luther King Jr. observed on the third Monday of January each year, which is around King's birthday on January 15.
Martin Luther King Jr. was an American Christian minister and activist who became the most visible spokesperson and leader in the Civil Rights Movement from 1955 until his assassination in 1968. Born in Atlanta, Georgia, King is best known for advancing civil rights through nonviolence and civil disobedience, inspired by his Christian beliefs and the nonviolent activism of Mahatma Gandhi.
