I can honestly say without a shadow of a doubt that I live in a beautiful place: Colorado. It's a place where the grass is mostly green, the highest mountains are almost always snowcapped, and the sun rising is an event of nature. Yet, when I think about the most beautiful place I've ever been, I don't just think of the town where I live in. I think of two places: Vero Beach and the Rocky Mountains.
1) Vero Beach
Vero Beach is gorgeous because when you travel to Florida, the weather tends to be unbearably hot. However, when you go to a beach, like Vero Beach, you feel comfortable and even a bit more relaxed. This was the first beach that I had been to in over ten years, and I'll never forget it. When you first walk onto a beach, there's a huge hill of sand that's grainy, hard, hot and completely uncomfortable. But then, as you get closer to the water, there's a floor of sand that the waves crash over that feels like a cold, soft carpet. This is the best place to collect seashells. Looking out into the water feels somewhat intimidating because of the energy of the waves and how infinite the distance of the ocean looks, and when you swim in the water you have to watch your step, because it's easy to loose your footing when the sea floor is completely made of sand. But it's a beautiful sight to see and constantly reminds you of the infinite power and beauty of God with each minute that passes.
2) Rocky Mountains
When our family first moved here to Colorado, we used to go on hikes in the Rocky Mountain National Park about once a month because we (my parents especially) couldn't get over how beautiful the view is. It truly is magnificent to see how big the mountains are and how for most of the year, even in July, they will be covered with snow.
I hope you enjoyed my presentation of two of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. It reminded me of God's beauty and omnipotence. :)
Question for the Reader: Where is the most beautiful place that you've ever been?
