Mule Riding on the Plateau

I recently got the opportunity to do two of my favorite things in one day, thanks to one of my favorite customers from work. Horseback riding and taking pictures. Actually, we didn’t ride horses, we rode mules, but that’s just a technicality.

We went out on a four-hour-long mule ride on the Uncompahgre Plateau. We headed out with the intention of getting some wildlife pictures – however, the day was quite windy and a little on the chilly side – it seemed that the residents of the forest were fairly well hunkered down. It was still an amazing day, and I got a few pictures of the very gnarled aspen trees that we saw, among other forest-y things.

I rather like the way they turned out.

Up on the Plateau

Today I took the kiddos up to the plateau for some hanging out, running around, playing in the woods time. And of course there was a lot of picture taking, too.

Of Camping and Frisbee

Last weekend was the big annual dirtbiking/camping/hanging out event for our little family and about 150 of our closest friends. Okay, not really just OUR friends, but pretty much everyone involved with dirtbikes and such here in Montrose. It’s always a great time and it’s one of my favorite events of the year. It is known to all as Fat Fred’s – bikes, quads, dogs, and kids spread all over the plateau and visiting with everyone you haven’t seen in months and those you see every day.

Naturally I had my camera in tow and had a lot of pictures to download when the weekend was over. Here are some of my favorites.
