Last year we didn’t have a 4x4 to prowl about the front range of the Rocky Mountains. This year we brought our Nissan, and we are a’ prowlin’ !
Today we climbed up to around 10 thousand feet to look over Prospector peak and Los Mogotes peak.
In the distance below is the town of Fox Creek.
In the distance below is Alamosa.
Below is a burnt over area caused by lightning strikes. The Carson Hot Shots put it out quickly a week ago. Then they overnighted at the Mogote campground before moving on to the next forest fire.
Along the way we found this cool old log cabin.
The logs were hand hewn by axe.
The broad axe marks are still visible.
The doors, windows and corners were hand sawn.
The walls were mud chinked. It was a great day for a ride up high in the cool alpine air.
