RABBIT EARS PASS TO CRAIG COLORADO
The landscape changed quickly. The pass is only 2000 feet higher than Kremmling. It went smoothly with a nice wide road, but the down slope is very straight and steep. It fed us down to a beautiful valley.
With two dead trees close to each other, the artist has some creative inspiration. Tree stumps can be ten or more feet high with multiple branches.
We are parked right next to this park and while I sat outside reading, this mother deer and two kids walked into the park to nibble on some bushes, totally unafraid of me.
Then she crossed the street, carefully, like she'd done this many times before.
Her kid followed, just like it was taught to do.
Then they both enjoyed another flower lunch with traffic streaming by on the main street in town. They then crossed that busy street, carefully, without fear, with no mishap, like they had done this before. Whew!!
