My Contribution - Bonito to Silver Passes
It was a beautiful day for hiking up high.
There they are, at Bonita Pass, standing in a marsh looking at blue flowers.
The moon was pointed out to me and was easily captured between trees. At home on my computer, I could spot some craters so I cropped the photo so that you might see them also.
Our tour leader giving one of his illuminating explanations, to what I do not know as I was last and just came up on the end of this conversation.
The lovely South San Juan's and I am told the mountain on the left is Montezuma (spelled right?).
Ah, the wonders of telephoto lenses. This peak is a mere blip in the above photo of the South San Juan's.
Just before "lunch", a wondrous view looking south.
The lunch stop, but first taking in the view.
George, Peter and I taking up the rear.
You can see the faster ones up ahead. Thoughtfully they would wait occasionally for us, or me.
I did not get a photo of the bull elk, as he did not wait for me. However, this colorful mushroom patiently awaited my presence. Deadly to eat, I am told.
P.S. Buy my book. It benefits the Creede Historical Society.
