    Camp this week

    Wanted to camp at O'Haver Lake but campground full, about a third of the sites 'reserved' but not occupied, so went on down to Pentitente Canyon, but decided to head on over to La Ventana del Norte. Got my days off changed so now I got the same days as the wife and took her along. Great place to camp as it's not as impacted by tourists and there ain't much there but rattlesnakes, bears, and lots and lots of cactus. No country for tennis shoes if you go. In 24 hours only 4 vehicles came by, I guess on their way to look at the Ventana. (OK, the sign says 'Natural Arch', but all the Hispanics and even me recognize it as a 'window'.

    Am I correct in assuming this is in the San Luis Valley?

    Great shots! Rugged territory.


    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.

    The Bald Eagle photo...he/she posed for me, gave me it's best American look. I felt privileged to get the shot.

    Yep, southwest of Saguache and on west of La Garita. Northwestern part of the valley. Check that area out. It has a little less traffic than the east side where the sand dunes are.

    Great shots, as always, RGINN! ╦╦C
    Sometimes, what's beyond the horizon is more important than the campfire.

    I've never been back in there. I've have some luck finding artifacts in those juniper and pinon forests. As they are today, I'm sure it was back then excellent country to ambush deer and other small game along with gathering pine nuts.
