|My Office & The Grand Mesa in the Background|
Looking back I believe that I was just going through the motions at the gym. Maybe even just rushing my way through. Now I have more of an appreciation for slowing down and completing a full range of motion during these exercises.

Very long story short, Shadow Boy's first 7 years were spent out here at least every other day. After Sadie Girls passing, he & I haven't been back. So far about three years now, its an area I sort of left a part of my heart, kinda avoided the area really.
Him & I jumped out of the car with excitement and within about 20 feet we danced around broken glass, cheap shit beer cans, and TONS of expired ammo shells. Every turn lead us to trash piles, more discarded beer cans, and evidence of non responsible gun owners. Total A-Holes!!
|The Beginning of it.... So Cool|
Above the Monument offers vast open space. All the way to Utah, trails in the Aspen trees, water holes, camp grounds, and a night sky of endless star gazing. Behind the Monument is the Uncompahgre Plateau Area with endless trails, camping, and rock hounding.
|And Now.. Again, Monument in the Background|
The full moon Saturday into Sunday morning was inspirational to say the least. The moon light illuminated a grove that blew my mind. You could clearly see the straight line of the Mesa's flattop, that purplish blue sky just before sunrise, and that patch of yellow stood out like a sore thumb reflecting the moons glow. Flippin Awesome
