Still on that Walk
For the last few blog entries, I have been taking you along on our morning walk.
We are now on the other side of the river (west). In case you have forgotten this is the Lake Fork of the Gunnison River. We are looking north... and that is the direction the river is flowing.
Around the corner we lean over the fence, to say good morning to Nash.
We have now arrived at the confluence of Henson Creek, coming in from the left , and the river. It is wonderful having both a river and a large creek running through town...and wait till you see our lake!
This is the location where they have put in a small beach for those that can't get away to the tropics.
Continuing along the river (heading south), you can see that the river is slightly out of it's banks...which is normal in the Spring and early Summer from the snow melt.
This is in the same vicinity where the helicopter lands. That grassy area is actually the outfield of our baseball diamond. If someone is ill or injured in town, and our clinic thinks the person needs to be seen by a specialist, a copter is called in to carry them to a larger city......putting the game on hold!
Jumping ahead we have arrived downtown. Okay don't laugh...this is about it. The street is blocked off because a fun run was going on. If you want to transport yourself back in time to a simpler lifestyle, cool summer temperatures, pot luck suppers, beautiful views. Not to mention hiking, biking, 4-wheeling and fishing.... This is the place!
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!
