|Colorado Hwy. 145 near Lizard Head Pass|
Up the Dolores river valley from the quaint and historic river town of Dolores on Highway 145. Up past the hamlet of Stoner, and Rico, my favorite mountain town. But I could not stop there, as I had a long way to go.

I settled into a campsite. A "dispersed campsite", meaning it was just a spot on the National Forest. No facilities, just me and nature. There was a well used fire ring there, but I had no desire for a campfire.
I began to look around at the wildflowers.
Then some deer walked almost right through my camp. Alert but relatively unconcerned, they know when it's hunting season and when it's not.
