Sharing my adventures in the Colorado mountains in the summer, and beautiful Ft. Worth Texas in the winter.

Okay What is Going on Here?
It all looked a little sinister to me when I first spotted them.
Young people fanned out across Henson Creek, scooping up every fish that came down stream. So not being exactly shy, I stepped out on a rock and said "What are y'all doing?"
The man in the blue hat, an Aquatic Biologist explained that they were with the Colorado Fish and Wildlife Dept. and they were counting fish in the creek, judging their health, and analyzing the chemicals in the water. He said all of the fish would then be released. There was also a young woman on a bridge just up stream. She was making sure no dogs ventured into the water, as they had a live electrical current pulsing through the creek to stun the fish, making them easier to catch. You never know what you are going to come across around here.
Headed out for a couple of days to celebrate my birthday. I will return. Janey
How could one persons life be so different from winter to summer? Well stick around and see. I live in a cosmopolitan city half of the year and then head to a tiny town in the mountains the other half.....a place full of interesting people, beautiful scenery, wild animals......and great adventures!
