Last Lent I did a series called “Sitting,” just observing what was happening in my backyard. I sat earlier this month in Estes Park, Colorado. Here’s what I saw:

These fellows were waddling around Lake Estes. They slipped on the ice, just like they were trying out skates for the first time. When we arrived, the weather was warm, so parts of the lake were unfrozen.

I love the trail around this lake, which reminds me a little of the trail around Lady Bird Lake in Austin. Lots of people and dogs. A few bikes.
