This pic is from the Texas Panhandle. I have been through this area several times. I am always amazed how God stacked up so much nothing in one place. I guess it is just here to hold the world together. Miles and miles between trees or even bushes.

The first few mountains start appearing. I cannot remember if this is near Raton, NM or in SE Colorado. Looked neat to me though.

We quickly found out we were not the only predators around. We saw several bears. Saw a porcupine too but it was too dark to get a picture.

Pretty view.

Re: Some pics of my Colorado trip...1st part of story added

Another pretty view. This was near Ridgeway, CO. You can see Mt. Sneffels in this pic. My dad camped there lots of times when he hunted Colorado.

This is Chimney Rock near Ridgeway. If you have seen the original John Wayne version of "True Grit" you have seen this rock several times.

This is the meadow I hunted most of the time. I shot the elk on the right side. (Long story upcoming..not a happy ending.)

Three elk wallows I found while searching for my elk.

This is above Ouray up the Red Mountain Pass. Scary ride! That is an old mine trestle at the bottom of the pic.

Re: Some pics of my Colorado trip

Glad you got us some good pics. I have never seen a mountain nor the ocean. I want to go to the mountains sometime and rent a cabin. I dont care to see the ocean. I wouldnt mind taking a stroll on the beach though. :eek:

Great Pics Bullie. You making me miss the Rockies. I have not been out there in about 5 years. But that may change soon .

Wow! Bullie those are great photos. I think everyone should go to Colorado at least once. The air up there even smells great.

Re: Some pics of my Colorado trip

The west is awesome and I often wonder why I bother to live here. Your pics make me even more eager to think about relocating. Got a career Marine client who just moved to Denver who said snow is about to arrive there. He's trying to get an elk permit. I'm afraid to take him up on an invite for a visit because I probably would never want to return home!

Sure enjoyed the pics. Hope you have some more to post!

Re: Some pics of my Colorado trip

Bullie, know what you mean about the Texas panhandle. Went thru there quite a few times when I was stationed at Ft. Carson (Colorado Springs). Like you said, literally nothing for miles.

Bullie those are some beautiful pictures. As much as I have traveled I have never been further west than Texas. Great pictures and I cant wait to see more. We will all be waiting on the elk story!!

Re: Some pics of my Colorado trip

I wish I could just sell everything I have here and move up there. I could, but I'm not sure about jobs up there...
