As many of you know it is my 40th birthday party and I rewarded myself for living this long with a 2 week trip out in the wild west. The first part was a trek to what (invariably) led to Las Vegas, but entailed exploring the southwest corner of Colorado. Specifically, visiting Mesa Verde national park and a wonderful hike though "The Canyon of the Ancients" which has similar Ute Indian dwellings from the 1100's. Just wanted to share some pics and prove to my loyal readers that I am not "goofing off" or "having fun," but am hard at work ensuing that I am as Cappy as I can possibly be.
However, I did want to explain one of the pictures below because it is pretty cool. It is the cemetery from a true western town that did exist called "Pahreah." Not only was it a real western town, it was also a movie studio location for various western shows, and a couple of movies. Not least of which was the final scene in "The Outlaw Josey Wales." I will simply make the statement that "adventure is out there" and all you have to do is leave your home to discover it.
