Mark must want me to get reeeeallly behind on keepin' up with my bloggin'! :o) Thought I'd catch up last night... uh uh... ain't gonna happen! 'cause now I've added 170 somthin' pictures to the 243 I took on the Yankee Boy Basin trip... and more stories to yarn 'bout...
Might could take all our time, workin' back to Nunn to lay it all out!
Like I was sayin', the Flowers here in Ouray, leastways this year... or this couple O' weeks of July are sure beatin' what we saw up to Crested Butte... too bad we don't have the time this trip, to roll back there now... and see if we were just early! :o)
Heidi's and My personal favorites are likely the Columbines...
we had a slew of 'em dug in around that Ol' house we no longer serve! :o) ... though it's kinda of a chore to make a choice of favorites... when you're surrounded by all the options!
It'd be like tryin' to claim which's purtier... a Blonde or a Brunette... truly can't be done!
So... we just amble on up the "Road Less Traveled"...
... and thank the Boss he made us smart enough to take what we had... and just... Git! :o)
I got to tell you... the money ain't right yet... and this circle we're makin' is a little over the line :o) we've traveled farther and faster than we plan to... through most of the future... but as a teasing 'test' run... it's made us gigglin' (literally) happy... and is tellin' us... that at least, for us, it's the right road to follow.
I can't know what's right for you... nobody can but you... whether it's RV Boondocking... or Motorcycle Touring... or climbin' on a bike like these folks ... or maybe... just building a secluded, self reliant homestead... or jumping off cliffs in Norway... with nuthin' twixt you and the ground but air... and nylon wings! (not likely to find me doin' that!)...
... and I have no intention of tryin' to tell you what you HAVE to do... EXCEPT... this Ol' Buster is gonna plead with you to do two things...
#1... Don't Wait! Do it now... do it with all your Heart...
#2... Chase that Dream in your Heart... Now!
and #3... Don't do... NUTHIN'! Climb out of that Rut... and DO SOMETHING!
Aw hell... that's more'n two huh? ... well... never could count very well when I start gettin' excited! :o)
The thing is... there's too damn much Joy out here in this Ol' world to let bad times behind you... Darken the Shining Times out in front!
We, Heidi and Me... were kinda nervous 'bout pullin' in here the other day... not sure what was ahead... meetin' folks is kinda spooky at times... me bein' purty much a self-imposed "loner" of sorts... but Oh Lordy... the past two days have been a Glory that's made it obvious to me... that My Guardian Angels of the past year were right...
It don't matter what's behind me... They opened my eyes to the absolute Shining Glory you can find ahead... if you just Suck it up Cowboy! (Like one of those Angels tells me all the time!) and Let It Come to You!
... and we need not have worried. A finer group of folks, you couldn't possibly want to travel the Mountains with... Mailman Steve, John Q, Margerite (sp?) and her Grandson Sebastian... and of course... no finer hosts than Mark an' Bobbie... awesome, awesome time!
So... With these last few flowers... I'll leave you till tomorrow... when I'll try to fit the story of Running 13,114 foot... Imogene Pass... in a Battered Ol' '99 Dually Ranch truck... to the amazement of some of the Other travelers on that wonderful lil' Road.
...Or the story 'bout how you squeeze an 8 foot wide Dodge truck... through a 6 foot wide Road! (only a lil' exaggeration there!) :o)
Squatting on a ledge above Ouray in the Colorado West!
