Retreat was wonderful and the setting was spectacular. The tree was in the Garden of The Gods which we visited before retreat.
The picture of the storm threatening was a daily occurance as we had storms almost every afternoon.
With storms and bright sun comes some spectacular rainbows, including a double rainbow, and though pictures couldn't capture it, one of the two was a full rainbow, reaching right across the sky.
Nights were lovely and clear.
The slower tempo of retreat afforded time for watching a humming bird catch a bite to eat.
Rabbits were constantly with us, along with deer and lots of birds.
