Autumn in the Colorado Rockies
8/21 through 10/10/06
return to our mountains in the central Colorado Rockies, once again
landing at Williams Fork Reservoir for a week before moving up the
mountain to hunting camp.
season is here. Joining us at camp in the Routt National
Forest is our son Marcus, John May, our nephew, Mike Matthews and
Mike Ross, both cousins of JoEllen, and Steve and Harold Gumm, Steve
works with Marc and John. Everyone but us have tags for deer
changing of the aspen trees is an incredible sight to behold.
We arrived with the leaves in full green, and watched them change to
the beautiful colors of fall. We even got a chance to bring up
David's ATV out of storage and ride around the peaks and valleys of
this fantastic area. September is a wonderful time to laze in
the high country.
had a frozen water line for a couple of days, while nature gave us a
genuine blizzard, but for the most part, a very nice stay.
Ross came all the way from Iowa to bag his first Mule Deer and had
success, bagging a very nice specimen to return home with.
similarity to the antler size of this deer is bogus.....not the actual deer, sorry Mike!)
