Nice trip narrative! This one snuck (an Americanism) by me!

I'll add your trip to trip Reports the next time I update it (in about 2 weeks).

Thanks for all your hard work in putting it together!

Nice pictures Mr. Bleu, They have a soft quality that's easy on the eyes. This is a great intro for you, glad you stuck with it. Come back often...

Bill,

Cool photos, thanks for posting. Them dogs got it made.

Have you ever been to Jarosa Mesa or Bristol Head? They are in that area, but back to the east some. We had planned on going to them during our last trip, but ran out of time and never got over there. I was just wondering if you had been there and were those places worth seeing.

Brad

Shoot! Another Outfitter TR with photos of the beautiful backcountry out West. Let's see, I've still got my old '87 F250 that I could strap one onto [emoticon]

The DH is an old Boy Scout alumni and leader and has hiked many a mile at Philmont near Cimarron NM although the last time was quite a while back. He's hiked in the Valle Vidal area and wanted to know what the road is like up there? Until I can get that Outfitter [emoticon], would the road be good enough a dually 4x4 hauling a TC with a 12' vertical clearance?

Thanks for all the replies and kind words.

IDMAN - I seriously considered moving to Colorado a few years ago during my retired carpentry phase. The plan was to build my own cabin, but the realities of old age and budget finally brought me to my senses.

BradW - I have done some 4 wheeling around the Creede, Lake City area including Engineer and Cinnamon passes, but not the Bristol Head or Jarosa Mesa area. I can recommend the forest road that continues past Rio Grande Reservoir and over Stony Pass. The valleys and mountains are spectacular. I would not try this trail in my Outfitter because of tree clearance problems on Timber Hill (Hill my foot, it is a mountain).

GoinMyWay - I think the Valle Vidal is one of the most beautiful areas I have ever seen. That is why I always take that route to Colorado in spite of the 60 miles of rough gravel road. The road is rough, but is well maintained and passable with two wheel drive and there are no clearance problems. I heartily recommend that you tour it. And to any folks that have children or grandchildren in the scouts, encourage them to go to Philmont.

For all the dog lovers - an introduction to my dogs on this trip. I discovered Blondie beside the road one very hot July day in 2001. She was just a pup covered with fleas and ticks and starving for water. She is mostly Lab, but a black tongue,heavy rough around the neck, and a short temper indicate some Chow in her lineage. She has been my constant travel companion since 2002. In 2005 we drove to Alaska and back across Canada (15,000 miles). She and our departed companion Trixie marked one of the largest territories of any two dogs in the world (not to start a p*****g contest). Jake is a young guy who along with his mother was trying to earn a living in the woods on the shores of Lake Texoma in the winter of 2008. They had evidently been abused and it took several weeks to coax them to come live with me. While Jake looks like a Lab he is mostly a hound dog and a fun guy.

Wazoo - Part of the softness of the photos can be attributed to the shakiness of the camera holder per this example:
