I’m fortunate to live in a place that inspires on a regular basis, but this past weekend was particularly so. My husband Peter, my sister Becky and I took my new Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk on a road trip to Snowmass, Colorado for the Roof of the Rockies Jeep Jamboree. We spent two days exploring the off-road trails of the region with other Jeep enthusiasts. This is a shot of Montezuma Basin. It’s an area, like many in the Rockies that attracted silver miners.
The gold streaks are mine tailings from the silver mines on the sides of the steep mountain face. And you can see the road we used to ascend the scree field to the top of the basin. Also, if you want to see a larger version of the shot, just click on the photo.
Here’s a shot of Becky standing by my Jeep. I like to name my cars and she had gone un-named for three months. On this trip, I was inspired to name her – Glory! Enough said…
