Headed East

The sun is approaching the lightly rippled surface of a reservoir near Pueblo, Colorado.  The lake is surrounded by tormented and twisted junipers well-separated by expanses of limestone sand and gravel.  Little else grows here, though the nocturnal presence of stunted deer is signaled by scatterings of scat.

Bev, the two collies, and I are camping here for the night after crossing two ranges of the Rockies today in Bev’s Dodge van.  We’ve been on the road now for ten days and I’ve accumulated hundreds of photos, many in the Utah canyon-and-hoodoo country.

Once I get to a place with a stable net connection and where I can use a real keyboard expect to see many of these Southwestern images!
