Morning Walk

Walking to the national forest fence.
Walking to the national forest fence at the foot of hill in the distance. The temperature was about 30 degrees and there was no breeze -- a perfect morning for a walk. (Larger version)

Abandaoned tree.
Along the way we passed some trees that someone had cut along the road. Evidently they cut a few limbs off this Pinyon and decided it wasn't what they wanted. (Larger version)

Snow covered peaks.
The snow covered peaks are about 20 miles away. (Larger version)

Ah...1933. I wonder if the CCC built that fence? It's been that way for 75 years. The way things are going, maybe in a few years young people will be swinging picks and shovels once again.
