Mountain Top Sojourn

We headed up to the mountain top for a stay at a cozy little wooden cabin...

... that comes with a picturesque view of the surrounding mountains.

I was so excited I practically ran all the way up the hill...

... to our little abode at the top.

Taking a breather under the tree after all the running .

The water sprouting frog at the side of the pool... not the best job if you ask me.

This is my nameless furiend, who came to play with me. I think she is the family dog of the indigenous tribe living in a village nearby.

In the late afternoon, we took a leisurely stroll along the path on the hill...

... that was lined with durian trees... which were in full season with plenty of durians hanging on each tree. Durians are one of my favorite fruits if you recall from this post.

We stopped at our track to enjoy the scenery as dusk set in.

The sunset view at the top of the mountain was really breathtaking...

... as I watched the sun painted the dusky sky with its beautiful glow.

Unbeknown to me, mother nature has another show for that evening, as it started to rain...

...but it did not rain for long... and right after the rain stopped, the next show began.

Lo and behold! In a splendor of colors, a rainbow formed over the mountain... it was truly an amazing sight.

A nocturnal visitor, twice the size of my paws... under the moonlit stillness of the night.

Break of dawn over the misty mountain.

*Yawnnnnnnn* Wakie, wakie.

Fresh and bright, the sun rose before my eyes.

Checking on the infinity pool, but it was too cold for a morning swim.

As the sun started to rise over the horizon...

... my furiend from the village came to visit me again, I think she missed me.

Chilling at the deck...

... whilst waiting for the hoomans to prepare breakfast.

I wished days like this, could just go on forever...

... as butterflies happily dancing away in pair...

... whilst the water lily blossomed gingerly in the morning air.

This has to be one of the most beautiful places you've taken us to yet, Hero. And the rainbow is - well, there are no woofs to describe it. It's like the uber-rainbow. Rainbows like in a story book. And they even had your favorite fruit hanging from the branches. Like paradise. Did you get any of that fruit, btw?

wags, Lola

You know Mom and I love flowers and that lily is gorgeous. I bet that rainbow was 87 times more wonderful in person too.
