Jeep + Offroad Trails = FUN!

2012.04.04
pixel
Good friends bought a cool new jeep awhile back and we took it out on an off-road trail on Sunday.
pixel
Bumpy....winding....narrow....steep....all the way to the beaver ponds in a remote area!
pixel
The dozen or so ponds were washed out a few years ago....but the beavers have been busy since then and the
ponds are back. Unfortunately, no beavers in sight while we were there.

Pond reflections....

As we were leaving we noticed another jeep across the pond heading into the water. I jumped out of the vehicle and found a "window' between pine branches to get a shot.
pixel
There we go! Well, I'm actually down the way a bit taking a shot ;))
pixel
Sunday was warm and dry in this area and since then we had several inches of snow!

The Shot That Got Away: One of the highlights of the ride was that we saw an animal that looked to be a wolf. It crossed over the road about 50 + yards in front of us. Large canine (definitely not a coyote), longish gray fur, moved like a wild animal. Who knows?

darfoster Cool! Sunday was a wonderfully warm day and it looks like you were making the most of it! A wolf? What a fabulous sighting! Not sure about a wolf population in Colorado, but of course they are in Wyoming and I'm trying to remember if they were reintroduced here. I know there are hybrids in the Lake George area though in a shelter. Maybe an escapee? Great shots!

joycephotography Is that your Jeep? That is what I want to get one of these days.

rmjannette really great photo journalism here. enjoyed it. looks like you guys need to get yourselves a jeep of your own :-) and wow a potential wolf sighting. awesome, blessed!

DancingDolphin Sounds like a 'big fish' story to me, Marsha! Just kidding... how awesome ... sometimes it doesn't really matter if you can identify them, it's the potential to have seen it that counts! Very fun set... we see this in the unpaved mountain roads around here and people always seem to be having a great time!
