Haiku Sunday – 14,000 Feet Above Normal

This week’s Haiku Sunday from 14,000 feet above our normal life commemorates the 4th of July hike on Mount Evans and Summit Lake we took with the brilliant food travel writers Come due Maiali (like two pigs). I strongly encourage everyone to dive into their lovely blog and find out what happens when a Russian Princess meets an American Renaissance man and they begin to tango around the world.
