On this blogger site one can click on all pictures except for the header two times each time making them larger which is a feature I like because it gives you the ability to really look very close at all kinds of things not readily seen.

Maria Meets Her First Bear

Kind of up close and personal for that first time. This Yogi was huge! I'm glad you got to see one Maria and that you have a story and pictures to go along with it.

Remember you can click on all picture in blogger twice each time making them bigger.

Critters

Different animals seen around. There are many more than seen here.
The picture of the bears at the door is not mine. That's what you call up close and personal.
The rabbit picture might be real good.

From Father's Day Weekend

Went for two criuses this weekend and found a few interesting things. Did not fish so one was not had and have none for the year as I've not fished. Some of these are not too good and are illustrative mostly. The prickly pear were in bloom depending on the elevation.

When there are a lot of these they are very pretty.
I found a place where there are so many of these ball cactus. Some were 5" across and I did not do a good job capturing these where there were more than one close together. Most of the time they are not that far out of the ground and I don't have a clue what they are. It might not be much but I sure enjoy see these plants and especially in big numbers. I'm going back there when there's better light.
Most of the time you gotta take the picture when there's a train to be had. Actually went down here to look at dinosaur tracks somewhere to the right of where the train is. The wind was howling between 30&40 so I passed this time.
The cemetery outside McCoy,Co. I've driven down this road hundreds of times and I swear I did not notice this until just last week and I like to think that I'm fairly observant. I must have been losing it years ago and didn't even know it.
This may have been the best picture taken all weekend if it weren't for the weed.
Click on this to get a pretty decent view of some yearling elk. They get so brown this time of year.
This is the best picture I have of a turkey buzzard. I kinda like these birds. With strong winds the last several weeks there has been a lot of soaring going on with these guys and the ravens. Fun to watch and wasn't able to get something good on video. The buzzards can crank up the speed when they want and do they all ever have fun. That's what this guy was doing was waiting for a gust to come up as his two buds had just taken off before I got there. It was nice he stuck it out so I could take this.
This is at a cemetery called Deep Creek NW of Steamboat Springs. Not too bad of a picture but it's the caption that makes it real and Henry will live on for many years to come. I did as told as I don't need a hex on me.
These last two are of an old drilling rig/platform or what have you but it must be 75 years old anyway would be my guess. I found it interesting.


That's about it and I guess if there was a moral to this it would be you never know what you will run across when you go for a ride around here. That and have your camera ready always!

Dragonflys

These creatures are fun to watch and can make very interesting pictures. I'm glad they don't bite.















There are hardly any red ones. These pictures are not too good. The blue ones are my favorites and it took several days to finally get some decent shots of them.

McConkie Ranch Vernal Utah

Putting this video at the top because it gives a much better perspective than pictures I think in this case.

Like to thank the owners of this property for allowing the public to enter and view these incredible art forms.

There's something about the last picture. It  reminds me of a certain Star Trek episode where the crew is observing a culture of people from a cliff face that uses a hologram. The hologram breaks and they are exposed. I just do not know where these artists got their ideas for such strange drawings when their world was so very small.
