Mom Spot: Places that Inspire

Last night I was writing a short piece about a great day trip. Out of Denver, there must be hundreds of places that fit that description! Colorado is perfect for travel because there is an unlimited number of things to do to suit every interest and ability. Hiking and biking, skiing, fruit picking, fishing, visiting historical monuments, hot springs or sporting events, and even indoor activities like museums and the aquarium stir the soul.

It also happens that we are planning our family vacation to Seattle and the surrounding area. I have been digging through online websites to find places to go that will create awesome family memories and a beautiful assortment of photographs. All of this travel on the brain has me thinking about places that inspire me. Some "places" are more like moments in time, or are less about the place and more about the "thing." ...You'll see.

So here are a few pictures to inspire you this morning. What are the places that inspire you?














I captured this picture of the aspens on Kenosha Pass just as fall was setting in.














These are the same aspens with the sun peering through.


Below is the view as you dock in Port Townsend on the Olympic Peninsula..................................
And then the view of the peninsula from Camano Island. 

Above is a foggy morning near Encinitas.












This was a perfect day at La Jolla. High tide and blue skies!

(Sorry. Having a little trouble with the captioning... the barn photos above are from Lancaster County, PA!)
