Johnson's Corner

Thursday, September 19, 2013

Summer is a time for road trips, whether the sun has just come out of hibernation or it is about to disappear for several months. Driving north from Denver, you pass through Johnson's Corner, famous for their cinnamon rolls—the perfect pick-me-up during a long haul. In the back parking lot, semis line up, the sun glinting off their colorful backs. Sometimes you can find beauty in the most unusual places.

Colorful surreys line up expectantly, like playful soldiers in an Alice-in-Wonderland world. Even in the middle of the city, sometimes a vacation is only fifteen minutes away. Whether you're on a bike or a boat, with the wind in your hair and the sun hot on your head, you can find stillness in movement as you smell the wet sand, the freshly cut grass, and the fecund plants, with the lively cries of children in the background.
