    Default A day in the canyon

    Monday, I took bus, train, and Lyft cab to Waterton Canyon. It was cold and windy (headwind both ways!) but sunny and I got these photos.

    True enough, my final home is still out there, but this is most certainly my home range and I love it. I love every rock I fall off and tree I trip over. Even when I am close to dying from exhaustion, a beautiful sunset doesn't lose it's power to refresh and inspire me and that, in itself, is enough to save me sometimes.

    nice country
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    Yes, nice pics. Good country, reminds me of here. We see sheep like that several times a year traveling through the Black Hills on our way to appointments or shopping in Rapid City SD. See scads of deer, Mule and Whitetail, and a herd of Bison every trip, flocks of wild turkeys about every other trip, and Elk maybe once a year on Highway 16. Never get tired of seeing the Sheep. We donít often go by Mount Rushmore, hardly ever in the peak tourist season, but about every other time we do go that way we see those little white Mountain Goats that live in that area, now they are cute. Only, we never have a camera. Thanks for the good pics.

    You know, one thing I miss are the pronghorns. The first time I visited Colorado, back in the 80s, they were everywhere.

    Madmax, if you get close to Denver, look me up.
