Did I miss the pole? I asked myself as I hiked down the trail through the trees. It is about 6:30am in the morning and I am looking for Ray’s hiking pole. We had a full moon last night which sometimes makes people a little crazy. I am thinking my husband is a little crazy as when we got started this morning he ran down the trail full pack and all because he wanted to get a moon shot behind the beautiful Collegiate Peaks. He put his pole on the trail in the spot he ran off in the trees and I found him the first time. But, he ran off again and I haven’t seen him for about a 1/4 of a mile.
I think this is what makes Ray a great photographer. Now I consider myself to be a good photographer but I am an opportunist. I sometimes happen to be in the right place at the right time and have a good eye for what works. But I will not manically run down a trail tripping over rocks with a full pack to take the perfect picture. It is one of the reasons I love Ray so much. Besides, who else would be crazy enough to go along with me when I come up with ideas like let’s hike the Colorado Trail? Yeah, it was my idea….
