Don’t go to Colorado!

….If you don’t want to enjoy beautiful mountains, incredible vistas, deep canyons and views that are quite frankly breathtaking! This is Colorado National Monument. The one thing I say over and over is that it’s hard to comprehend the vastness and size of this area. By comparison we are just a fly Spec!

The first overlook view. Not very high up yet and can still see forever!

The drive through this park is 24 miles along the top rim of the canyon. Are you afraid of heights? Don’t look down!! Some curves look as if you are driving off the edge of a cliff and the bottom is some 900 feet straight down! Venturing down in the canyon as a hiker requires a great deal of stamina as most trails are very strenuous.

As we took a break for lunch, we had a curious visitor lurking in the tree a few feet from our table. It turns out it’s a Scrub Jay very similar to a Blue Jay that we see in Michigan.  Maybe he’s just looking for bugs to eat…….or maybe a small lizard……..2016-oct-colorado-national-monument_10-09-16_6041

NOPE! …Corn Chips!

I think the little bandit has done this before! Let’s see how brave he really is!

It never failed! Each time I held out my hand with a chip he would fly to my hand, grab the chip and off he’d go. the bird definitely knows how to get a free lunch!

Colorado! A fabuous place to be!
