PINK SATURDAY COLORADO

I love my home state Colorado! I am proud to be a native and enjoy the beauty all around us. Did you know we have more days of sunshine than Miami, Florida? If you are a native here you know the weather can change in a heartbeat! Often people will say "If you don't like the weather now, wait five minutes!" Do you know that we have a low rate of air pollution? We have a low prevalence of  obesity, diabetes and sedentary life style. Don't you love the pinkness of the setting sun?
This is an autumn view of the Maroon Bells. As a teen I was able to admire this beauty fourteener close up.
This is Pikes Peak mirrored behind the beautiful Garden of the Gods. As a kid my folks house faced Pikes Peak and the view was magnificent from our living room window even though Pikes Peak was about thirty five minutes from our home. Again as a teen I was able to hike some of this beautiful fourteener. Katherine Lee Bates wrote American the Beautiful in the summer of 1893 when she saw the view from Pikes Peak. See the pretty pink of the Garden of the Gods?
Colorado has lots of waterfalls! Although I am uncertain exactly where you would find this one it sits quietly in front of a field of beautiful pink summer flowers!

I thought I would share my native state with you today for Pink Saturday! Please make an effort to visit Beverly and other pinkies. Beverly is correct in saying Pink Saturday is about fellowship and friendship so please visit lots of pinkies today!

This first picture is absolutely stunning, Anne. I do believe, Colorado is one of the prettiest states in the US!

Hi, Anne, I did read your post! =) I'm so glad you shared these lovely pictures of Colorado. Paul and I loved traveling there and had many favorite spots. One of my favorites was Delores, by the river.

How absolutely, beautiful Anne, a blessing indeed. I'm actually from Miami, Florida, and I can imagine you'd have more sunshine since you have less humidity...but do you have not one but three oceans of endless turquoise waters and treasures at your feet? :) teehee AH, BUT you have those majestic mountains. SIGH...Tell you what...let's erase the miles across our map and get our two states together. ;) Wouldn't that be something. Love how we can dream in blogland. :)
Thank you so much for these gorgeous photographs, love. It felt like a breath of fresh air. Thank you for stopping by the shop. LOVED visiting with you today.
XOXO's
