Monarch Pass

Near Gunnison, Colorado

It was a good climb up to this pass.  Two trucks pulling trailers were stopped by the road, hood up.  Two passenger cars were at the top, hood up, steam billowing out.  The Little House on the Highway did good.  I like to drop in behind a big semi truck that is just crawling along with flashers going. 
Just take it slow and easy.

A big difference from the country we've been in for the pass few months.

I went into the gift shop.  This jacket was so soft.  Wish I were a woman.  I'd buy it.  
Well maybe guys could wear it too?  $50.  $40 for a vest.

I got this instead.  Couldn't resist.

Something tells me that a Guard Cat might not be as vigilant as a canine security officer. It might amuse you to look up the Les Barker rhyme, "Guide Cats For The Blind" on YouTube.

Are those trees dead?
Beans is a very handsome guard cat. Complete protection against mice, frogs, lizards, all kinds of creepy crawlies.
