One thing that amazes me when I visit the Rocky Mountains is how nature adapts itself to harsh conditions. On the mountains I see a variety of plants that are hardy enough to live in atmospheres lacking in oxygen and sunlight and warmth, and not only do these plants survive in this climate, but they thrive. They blossom with colors of purple and pink and yellow and white, and their leaves are brilliant shades of green peeking out from rock crevices.
I often wonder if I could adapt to such harsh conditions…would I continue to blossom and flourish a midst rain and snow and gale-force winds? Would you?
