Show & Tell: “Sleeping Indian”

If it’s Sunday, it’s Mel’s Show & Tell.

This is the view in springtime from our deck. If you click on the photo to enlarge, can you see the sleeping indian* head in the mountain ridge? The profile of his face is about a third of the way from the left.


This is the view YOU would have if you came over for a mojito.

* yes, I know this is not PC. Yes, I know the PC phrase would be, “sleeping indigenous person of the western hemisphere.”

But yes, that is what the landmark is called. On maps and stuff.

And why, after a g*d-knows-how-many mentions, does my spellchecker still stumble over “mojito”?

  2. Oooh! I’m proud of myself because I saw the face even before I enlarged the picture.That is really gorgeous–the view.

  5. what an amazing view to drink coffee to! I bet you get lots of snow in the winter and so can just drink Hot Chocolate instead!! ;-)

  6. Killing two birds with one stone on Mel’s Show and Tell and NCLM.Great view of the mountains. And yes, I can clearly see that indigenous person of the western hemisphere from my shivery spot in the Southern one.Please pour me my mojito now.

  7. Hmmm, we had a mtn we called sleeping elephant behind the house where I grew up. I love the mountains anywhere!Here from NCLM!

  11. What a beautiful view! I lived in Alberta for 7 years and miss seeing real mountains. Thank you for posting such a great photo.

  12. Ya know, I’ve always wanted to go to Colorado for a mojito… and now, with that view and you being my pardner, I just may have to invite myself!

  13. Ah, drooling with envy…I think I’ll go for a cup of Earl Grey instead of a mojito, but would love to drink it with that view in sight…

  14. What a beautiful view! And, for the record, if you had used the PC name, I wouldn’t have know what you were talking about!

  19. I feel like I saw it right away. That can’t be right. I never see anything that isn’t beyond obvious (that is why those lame abstracts with actual images if you squint made me pull my hair out). Oh, blog hopped. Hope you don’t mind. I’d totally sit in your backyard with a Mojito any day . . .

  20. I came, I enlarged, but I didn’t see the indigenous person’s profile. It’s like those magic puzzle pictures…I can never see those either.But, what a gorgeous view! Thanks for sharing!

  24. So so pretty.About the jeans – I get them at the outlet – Saks 5th avenue – But I wait until a 40% or 50% off sale. They are something like $140ish a pair, so I like to get them slightly cheaper. But OMG – they are SO worth it.

  27. Gorgeous view. I love to see the mountains too. I grew up on the east coast and live in MN now. No mountains here! Great pic.

  29. I am so jealous that you have that gorgeous view to stand in awe of everyday. It reminds me of when we lived in Colorado and I had a daily front row view of Pike’s Peak.
