Estes Park, Day 1. Stress Melting Away…

Ahhh…we’ve been here for just at a day, and already we’re more relaxed than we’ve been in about a year and a half.

We started our afternoon at Rocky Mountain National Park, and were joined for lunch by some black-billed magpies, who were shameless about trying to steal our sandwiches and apples. Seems theft is a popular survival technique, because one of them flew off with a largely uneaten apple, only to have it stolen by a large hawk.

Mood: Happy! It must be catching, because even the animals here are smiling:
