Well, it's quickly approaching our departure date and we better hop-to-it to get our chores completed. That means cleaning, organizing and eventually winterizing Rocky for the upcoming snow season. We will go through our clothes collection, and pack up the remaining dry goods, cans and jars of food stuffs to bring back home (between the bears and potential freezing temp's it's good just to do a clean sweep). We've started to get busy. Last night it got down to 34° and I'll bet there was a light dusting of snow in the higher elevations, we're at 7200'.
A few days ago we made a big loop up towards Mt. Evelyn and saw some truly diverse and beautiful landscape. We packed up our sandwiches and fritos, cold drinks too and headed out around 10am. Here are a few shots of this area north of Red Feather Lakes.
|We knew it was going to be a great day of sights.|
|Cherokee Range Wildlife Area|
|It's kind of hard to see but we're following |
the road you see in the middle of the shot.
|Talk about a little bit of everything, butte's, lunarscapes|
and lush tree'd slopes too.
|Same pond, looking the other way - so pretty!|
|A bit blurry, but we've got horses!|
|Aspens changing color|
|Getting into ranching country|
|These folks have some wonderful views|
|Talk about layers upon layers - a long view for sure!|
