Things I learned this weekend

Dino-camping, BSU banquet, and bonfires.

I really, really like sunrises.

Bacon fried over a fire is really tasty.

Skinny dipping in Purgatory is super refreshing.

Even hollow trees are fun to climb.

I like rivers.

Colorado once had a lake where dinosaurs walked.

Every group has someone who doesn't have their stuff together and holds everyone else up.

It sucks to be that person.

Colorado can change from mountains to grasslands to canyons as fast as you can read a few chapters of Larry McMurty.

Willow trees will always give away the river.

Vibram FiveFingers are great hiking shoes.

If you're an evolutionary biologist who studies birds, you can recognize birds by their song.

When one bird sings the song of fifteen different species, it's a mockingbird.

Mockingbirds in Colorado have heard chickadees.

Being up-front with women impresses them.

On the grasslands, the stars are incredible.

Peruvian hammocks are comfy.

If you go for a hike in the canyons after reading Larry McMurty, you'll expect Indians to suddenly appear on the ridges above.

Saying goodbye is hard.

Sometimes, Christian men don't treat women as well as non-believing men do.

Women have a lot of wisdom.
