I finally got motivated this morning to go find some Internet and put some posts on the blog. I sat in my truck while I was doing that and it was so bright with the sun coming through the windows that I could barely see the computer screen. Fortunately I had written out all the blog post beforehand but still it was more difficult and took a lot longer than I imagined. with all of that I think the blog may look a bit different and there will probably be a lot more mistakes.
I also want to apologize to the folks that made comments because it took me so long to respond. But it appears that while I'm here at Poverty Gulch its going to take a while before I can post to the blog or respond to any comments so please be patient. I value my readers and I don't want to lose either one of you.
Tomorrow morning I'm going to town and get some supplies. I need to go to Walmart, the hardware store and get some gas for the Yamaha. Oh yeah, I also need to fill up one of my propane tanks and hopefully get this post on my blog.
I finally drove around and found some Internet so I'm putting six posts on my blog this morning, five are for the RV and one is for the motorcycle. It's kind of tough being without any phone service because that's my primary source of Internet and and it's really annoying to have to sit beside the road and work on my blog but that's the price you pay if you want to boondock, because Boondocking by it's very nature will sometimes have cell phone challenges.
Yesterday afternoon I heard some weird noises so I stepped outside and saw this herd of bighorn sheep grazing as they walked through the meadow. They were walking pretty fast so I knew they wouldn't be there long and the first camera I could get my hands on was my little Sony pocket camera so this is the best picture I was able to get they were about 100 yards away and I'm kind of amazed they came that close to the Arctic Fox. Bighorn sheep are very shy and skidish especially when they're down on flat ground and will get gone before you can say "aunt Fanny's pajamas ", So I knew I didn't have time to put a telephoto lens on my big camera.
I rode the Yamaha WR450 up into the national forest this morning, parked it and did some hiking up in the hills. It was a beautiful morning with a lot of fluffy white clouds in the sky so I took some pictures.
I didn't do as much hiking as I had planned on because it appears that this area is being affected by plate tectonics and the hills are being pushed upwards to such a degree that they are far higher and steeper than they were when I was younger. At one time or another I have hiked up to the top of every hill you see in the pictures of my property but now due to the results of continental drift and the constant uplifting of the Rocky Mountains the hills have become too high for me to Summit without camping for a few nights on the way up.
So it appears that I've lived so long that tiny hills have been pushed up into mountains and since that's the only logical explanation for my very brief hike this morning I have to assume that it will only get worse.
