In the Field.

5-1-2014

Almost nothing is better than a day off. A day to spend doing whatever it is that you want to do while knowing everyone else is at work. Ahh, yeah, I hope they get some of my “to do’s” done.

My wife and I will be headed up to Jefferson C.O. for the day. I will also be doing some scouting.

 

Stay tuned!

Day off in Jefferson and Fairplay C.O.

It was that wierd temperature you get at higher elevations where the sun is hot but the wind is chilly. After just 20 min you could tell that your neck was already burning. It was so nice though.

This looks like a nice Bristlecone, hmmm.

We went back to the truck and got some tools.

Within 10-15 min the tree was out of the rock wraped and back to the truck with minimal trouble. IMG_3018

Wife decided to take advantage of the down time and awesome views. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!

IMG_3021 IMG_3022 IMG_3023This is a gnarly twisted up old Bristlecone. Awesome!

IMG_3025 IMG_3026 IMG_3027 IMG_3028The Bristlecone was eased into a spot in the garden with 1/2 the dirt from the original site. This will be it’s place of rest for quite some time.
