Life is better when you can hike 7 miles or so with a good amount of gain after work.
The rain and drizzle kept the crowds away.
Some rare quiet was savored in the Boulder open space.
You are reminded of why you moved to where you live and why you work.
If it so you have the leisure time to take a walk, see the wildflowers. See the stream rage from snow melt. Enjoy some beer and pizza after.
Life is bliss.
