1 Shot Wednesday: Colorado Aspens

Counting down the days until we head to the Colorado Rockies for some quiet time at a lake cabin. Last time Jim and I went to the San Juan National Forest just north of Durango, we camped outside of Telluride. This time we are trying out Vallecito Lake. There’s giant Pike lurking in the depths, and Jim wants to catch one. I remember as a girl living in Northern Wisconsin; I was awestruck by fishermen coming to shore to clean their catch. With monstrous teeth in a wide mouth, and its length at 1 meter (3 and some feet), Pikes are predators and scavengers. Let him fish. I’m kayaking and taking pictures of Aspen trees. Stay tuned!

  1. Have a wonderful time. I would be no use on that trip. I don’t fish, and cannot paddle a kayak. (As far as I know, as I have never tried.) But I could take lots of photos I suppose. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete. x

    1. Me, too! According to a “leafing” report, I hope to see half the Aspens covered. That glow–can’t wait to surround myself in the golden yellow. What a bubble to be in,.
