Spring Begins In The High Country
Lone Cone Peak, from the south in early May, 2018. The re-emergence of plant growth happens last in the high country. We watch it move up from the lowest elevations to the highest. From the warmest to the coolest. Early springtime in the mountains is what I...

Moonset and Sleeping Ute Mountain from upper McElmo Canyon. Unbelievably I was moving out of Cortez, Colorado after only a year there. Things change. Not only a new job but a transfer to another portion of the western slope of the state. Another area to exp...

Bedrock, Colorado
The Bedrock Store at Bedrock, Colorado.  It was the last day of February, and it felt time to take another long drive into the mountains of southwest Colorado. To them, between them, through them. Why not? (My usual excuse, as if I need one). My first real ...

Coyote, roadside hunting, Mesa Verde National Park. One of the many privileges of working in a National Park is that you can more frequently see wildlife in a more natural state. As in: not being shot at. I thought about this as I was driving back out of Me...
