Swankie Camps, continued (Colorado)

What I had wanted to share with you is more photos of the beautiful area where I am living/working this summer, but got a little distracted by a troll who has nothing better to blog about than me (imagine that!)… so here are the photos now.  My apologies to my readers for getting side-tracked.

Very interesting.

The lake was restocked last week with over 2,000 more trout.  What fun that was to watch.

I’ve enjoyed watching these ducks the last few months. While the hens were nesting and hatching out their clutches, the males were gone somewhere… I was told they were off molting and could not fly at that time.  But they have returned and rejoined their families.

These dogs I met on the lake this week are Zoey and Will.  How funny!  Those are the names of my two youngest grandchildren.  Here are my Zoey and Will.

Really, not much to say, just wanted to share these images with you.  If you know what kind of ducks these are, I’d like to know.  I’m looking for a flora and fauna book on Colorado today before I return to the mountain.

Visit me on https://www.facebook.com/swankie.wheels. In 2006, I was shopping for a wheelchair. By 2007, I had new knees, better health and by 2008 a kayak. In Aug 2013, I kayaked my 49th state, Alaska, at the Holgate Glacier and in May 2014, I kayaked Hawaii, my 50th state, to celebrate my 70th Birthday and the finale to the wonderful adventure of Kayaking America? Next up... Solo Hiking the Arizona Trail, 820 miles in Spring 2017. In training now for the hike.
