“You ask me why I dwell in the green moun­tain;
I smile and make no reply for my heart is free of care.
As the peach-blossom flows down stream and is gone into the unknown,
I have a world apart that is not among men.”

– Li Bai, legendary Chinese poet

After I add a log to the wood stove in my under-construction DUSTY home before bed time, I go outside and crawl into my sleeping bag in my super-clean-air fancy deepfreezer bedroom…  :-)  Always nice to enter the still-toasty home in the morning, though.

 San Luis Valley (SLV), South-Central Colorado, 8,200 ft.

It was – 22 Celcius last night.

Looks like it will warm up again, with a “heat wave” next week:

The winter storm at the beginning of the week dumped about a meter of snow higher up, but only 12 cm (or so) where I live.  I had hoped for three times as much, but it’s something.  So, as is apparently “the usual” here, the storm was hyped again.

The mountains look extra gorgeous, though.  Couple more photos taken this week:

Flashback to a very recent past when I still lived almost exclusively out of my car, and camped in a múch smaller tent, less than a year ago: (Feb. 28, 2015) Winter Camping in the Sand Dunes (Southern Colorado PHOTOS).
