In the First Shadows of Early Morning—-Monday, November 20, 2017

Early, early Saturday morning we took a ride into the Escalante-Dominquez Wilderness just a few miles from our farm

Map of Dominguez-Escalante National Conservation Area

We wanted to see the new bridge the county put in by The Escalante Cattle Company Ranch and then to find where the old bridge was moved.

Of course Terry didn’t want to take the ‘regular’ road πŸ™‚

Stopping on top of a huge knobby hill we took a walk here and there

Looking upon this land where the shadows seem to dance unfettered

Across timeless vistas

And there below…the Gunnison River moving ever toward the joining of the Colorado River at Grand Junction, Colorado.

Not far from us…just over there….

Your friend on a western Colorado farm,

  1. My dad was stationed in Grand Junction before he went to the China Burma India Theater in WW 2 as a medic…………..I would have been born there except mom went back to Chicago where her parents were. I long for the West in my Soul….and when I did my CS Bible work for 16 days in Albuquerque I feel in TOTAL LOVE…….and hope to move out there at some point. So in your beautiful map there and vistas would Albuquerque be North East…I love the timlessness of Albuquerque and your state as well..and also the 19 active pueblos of our founding Native American culture… Thank you for this glorious vista…is Boom there too?
