Closer to home

South of Spring Creek Basin and Disappointment Valley is an area of the San Juan National Forest known as The Glade. Benchmark Lookout, an old fire tower that is staffed during fire season, has a commanding view from the top and can be seen in the far background of this photo of our lovely Chipeta. The aspen in western Colorado are a little less advanced than those in eastern Utah, but they’re catching up quickly!

Thanks for this ! The story of the Tower was good. And a horse in the wild land made it perfect!

I was able to go up in the tower years (YEARS) ago for a story for the Dolores Star. And yes, I found Disappointment Valley in the distance!

Chipeta is looking good in front of our changing aspen. We were just up there at Benchmark a week ago and everything was still green! Things are happening fast.

Right? It’s summer still … and then it’s gold!
