Because this is what we came to experience:
The Tallest Man on Earth, and the Head and the Heart, at Red Rocks Amphitheater. And it was as amazing as the rest of the trip.
I guess that once you are over 50 years young, you feel the finite nature of your time on earth a bit more and you start with ticking of the bucket list items. At least, we seem to be doing it, my love and I. Most of our items seem to involve traveling.

During the hiking, I often walked alone (being the slow poke and least fit) which suited me in the most excellent way because I am such an introvert. However, another highlight of hiking arrived in the form of my friend Julie, who was kind enough to keep pace with me. Like a true introvert, I do not have many close friends, and it is difficult to describe what I felt: joyful recognition of the meeting of minds/souls...which went way too fast. Telling me that I should make it a point to connect more with those precious few, in my 'old age' (ahem).
And thus, I got a taste of wind-in-my-hair-let-it-all-go, causing me to drive with the windows open and blasting the Head and the Heart singing along out of tune at the top of my lungs this afternoon.
