Found off a dirt road in Northern Colorado is a peek at yesterday when such sights would have been common. Once the land was sacred, and nature provided all that was needed.

    • Thanks you. I am thinking it was too warm that day for ice to have been on the water. It was on March 15th and it was 72 degrees. That said, there was still some snow in the shade that was busy melting. It was the second and last day of good weather we had in March. I know this because it was the only day I have hopped on my motorcycle this year 🙂


  1. This is a very interesting picture. I like the water in the front. And it does look like ice on that water! We have some teepees near us at a historical park. I keep asking the Mom Person to take me to visit, but we have yet to do that. Have you ever been inside one?


  2. This is one of those extra-special compositions, Mike. I have looked and looked again at this photo. The tree frames the image beautifully. My eyes are drawn to the tepee, and the reflections of the whole scene in the foreground water add even more magic. Marvellous!


      • I would hope that we would, or might, anyway…and while I haven’t read the story yet, and am only vaguely familiar with it, I do have it in a book of collected works by Mr. Wells…. So maybe I’m old enough, just not cultured enough yet…. 🙂


      • Wow…that’s quite an impression! Maybe I should visit the library and see if I can find the old film to see what I’ve been missing all these years. 🙂


      • Ah well…I do have an 11 year old son right now…so I’ll make sure he doesn’t see that one until he’s about 35 or so….


      • He has no shot at innocence with everything being so sexualized now. But I’m sure he is a good kid who will only give you joy. Mine sure was/is.


      • I know that’s true, Mike…my older kids turned-out well in spite of all the crap out there…hoping the same for my little one now, too…and yes, he is a wonderful kid…and full of joy. I’m glad you know the same joy.
