Wild Horses

Driving onto the mesas at Mesa Verde National Park involves some twisty, winding, narrow roads that sometimes give the feeling you are about to drive off the end of the Earth.  The first couple trips up, I didn’t notice anything except the long ways down.  When I began to relax and accept that driving these roads is no different than any other road, I began seeing things.  I noticed wild turkeys, mountain blue birds, golden eagles, and wild horses.

I saw wild horses the other morning on my way back down to the campground, but there was no place to safely stop and take pictures.  So I told myself, there will be other chances.  Today, on my way back down to camp, I saw them again and was able to grab some quick shots.

The weather has turned sunny and the river has crested.  Of course mom, dad and Sam are fine.

Almost everyone seems to have weathered the storms and are none-the-worse-for-wear.

Pastures Turned into Lakes

Other rural roads and lanes had water rushing across but the roads were still intact underneath.

But nearby fields had turned into lakes.
