"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Hiking and Riding


We had family arriving from Mississippi on Monday evening, so decided to take a ride up to Cottonwood Pass Monday morning.  Thought Sally and I might get a little time on the Continental Divide Trail.

Well, come on.

But, not before a romp in the snow.

We only did a short distance.  After spotting the largest squirrel she had ever seen, Sally only wanted to hunt.

Family arrived safely and we did some Jeep touring today.  Of course the battery died in my good camera and I only had the point and shoot.  Spent the day climbing over rocks, through creeks, and visiting old places.
