We went to Pueblo yesterday to do some fishing, but when we got to the spot that my husband and his friends used to duck hunt at, we found the water dried up and the riverbed was completely over grown with vegetation. Our disappointment was very short lived though because the scenery was breathtaking.
It was easy to let my mind wander back into the days of the Native Americans and pioneers who once traveled through this area long ago. Even more awesome was the thought that I was seeing some of the same landmarks they would have seen centuries ago.
This is a corner post of the Swallow Community Cemetary. The cemetary lies on an outcropping by the old creek bed with 3 sides looking down onto what was once a lush waterway. Even now it is a peaceful and scenic place to Rest In Peace.
We decided to go west and try our luck at Brush Hollow. We didn't catch any fish there either, but I was able to get a few pictures. As I have been finding lately, my better shots are not my most interesting shots. I took some closer shots of this Great Blue Heron, but I captured some blackbirds in this exposure which I felt added character to the tranquil scene.
