To celebrate my birthday in early September, several close girlfriends joined me on a birthday hike! We started with a short energy process to connect with the Earth, to facilitate us both receiving and gifting energy with her throughout the day. She gifted us with beautiful, warm early fall Colorado weather (down low) with golden Aspens, a bright blue sky, and some remaining wildflowers! We hiked from Telluride to the top of Mendota Peak at an elevation of 13,275’, where the wind was howling and chilly. We each put on all of our warm layers, including down jackets! After celebrating with some lunch and yummy chocolate, we headed down, warming up as we looped back down a different path to Telluride. So grateful to Mel for leading the way, and all the ladies who joined in on this spectacular birthday celebration!
