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.

Once Again Overdue

I'm not seeing pictures like I used too. Camera got bad broke in Mexico just when my interest had returned. Couldn't replace it but have now with a identical used one two camera's ago because it does macros so well. But it's well past time to post something as I still enjoy photography and always carry my camera with me just that not taking many pictures. 

So here's a stab at it with pictures starting in May or so and no order in fact they are mixed up. There are a couple that are interesting but mostly illustrative


 This is a lobby picture of a bank in Trinidad that has just finished a remodel. Notice the safe above the real safe. Old and original and the rooms in another part are Art Deco like. Just liked it.

Remember about clicking on the pictures to make them HUGE and twice for even BIGGER.

Above this cows butt is Fisher Peak the flat mountain just outside Trinidad.

I tried to get to the top of Greenhorn mountain and didn't do so well but the highlight was the awesome surprise of MANY healthy columbines. This is well into July and below columbines just don't grow. This is probably at 10,500' and on this long hike few decent pictures were had.  

It's rained so much at times mushrooms were popping up a lot of places. Another ride another day at elevation went past this fellow with a sack. Saw he was Japanese and it was "Stop the car!".  Mushroom hunting the whole family coming a long way to do so from Colorado Springs. This picture does not do these justice. There were a lot of mushrooms with four variety's at least.

There were just a lot of mushrooms out and these people were after some special ones for sure.

And because of the rain it a sea of yellow many places.

Then there's Bob. Too long a story to tell other than to say this is quite a cat.

This is now a defunct gas station north of Trinidad and Fisher Peak is there again. Identify with the writing and to think one used to be able to get biscuits&gravy here.

Bob is a troublesome boy and a first class sneaker inner but can't be allowed in. He tangles with my cat Stretch for dominance which is problematic for sure. This kitty has not one hint of meanness in him and has lived a fairly tough life for at least half of his approximate 8-9 years. It's much better now as a neighbor and myself sorta took him in but he don't get to come in. We like this animal a bunch.

See what I mean - he has commandeered Stretch's heated bed.

I believe this is the west Spanish Peak on the south side.

The town of La Veta lays pretty much at the base of these mountains and provides the chance of incredible pictures at certain times along with other geographical features found only around here.

It's just plain enjoyable to take rides out in the country to observe plus animal activity is high.


These are the Culebra Mountains just west of the Spanish Peaks. Taos is on the other side more or less. The ski runs are at a long closed ski area above La Veta called Cuchara. It quit snowing enough probably 20 years ago that made trying to make a go of it unviable. Climate Change is very real unlike what others say.
Then Stretch definitely out like a light and loving it.

For A Friend

I returned to Mexico 1/7/17. On the 4th received a call that Andres had collapsed in Puerto Vallarta. He is the one sitting and the photo is from this post. He never regained consciousness and passed away on the 18th.

Never would I have thought this guy would go out like this. Just figured he'd be around like forever. Many took a big hit losing him. It's a different place around this tiny burg but the shock is wearing off. We had a lot in common and this has me seriously looking at life and what's left of it a bit differently.

So this ones for you mi amigo! He would have liked this. Adios.
