With the snow storm over, we headed to Montrose right after breakfast so we'd have food next week. Right before we headed out I ran back to the house to get my camera- never know what you'll see...
The driving was very icy and scary. Everyone was driving slowly. I got my camera out to get a shot of the grand view of mountains covered with snow at Dallas Divide. (land belongs to Ralph Lauren, or used to.) Click, then discovered the memory card was back at the house. Oh well, just a postcard shot anyway. Around the curve and EIGHT large turkeys fly just over our car and climb the hill on the other side. I've been looking for turkeys since we got here!
Then by the river in Ridgway, we saw the site we've joked about as being impossible, becausee a friend had said she always sees them on the road to Montrose, by the river. (yeah, right, we thought.) The trees were filled with EAGLES, both golden eagles and bald eagles. There must have been twenty in a two mile stretch!
I tried to get a memory card in Montrose at the various stores where we shopped, but they were too expensive, and my camera doesn't do far away closeups anyway.
That map at the bottom of my blog seems to have drifted axis. No longer is my unknown friend from Tasmania on display, and now it says I'm in Rogers, Minnesota. I hope not!
