Deer Spotter

When we  drive the fifty five miles back over two mountain passes, and through parts of the Gunnison National Forrest, from Creede, CO to Lake City, we usually have the person who rides as a passenger, in the front seat, watch for deer. I have seen on this drive a fox, marmots, big horn sheep, deer, elk, a cougar and moose....all crossing the road, over the years.
We were however, a little shocked to see these cattle up on the top of Slumgullion Pass which is 11,530 ft (3,510 m.). It is not open range . We would have called the police to report them...but there is no cell service up there. Hopefully the rancher found his cattle!

  1. You lead a busy life, partying, driving, and taking photos. Next you'll be helping ranchers find their cattle!
