Today, I am thankful for shade.
S, T and I arrive early at the Ute Valley Park boulders. It's 9 AM and already energy-sapping hot.
The boulders rise above us forming a welcomed sandstone shield. They willingly absorb the sun's rays and mercifully shade our staging area. I anticipate a productive session figuring out moves on current projects.
T, who doesn't tolerate summer's heat very well, is very glad that our "playground" is cool and comfortable. So are we.
For this blessing, I am grateful.
