Panorama from Top of the World. Views of Silverjack Reservoir, Cimarron West Fork, Middle Fork ,and East Fork. Heaven just has to be only a stone's throw away!
View up the Cimarron East Fork. That's Uncompahgre Peak at the end of the valley - I've been to the foot of it on a couple sides. I need to get up there! It's the highest point in the San Juan Mountains.
Trees don't last long up here, there's just too much wind. But, on this day it was unusually pleasant, only a breeze.
Some old mountain goat.
The west side of Sheep Mountain is gnarly! I'd love to see how that was created.
Shrooms - I doubt they are edible. Joann thought they were "cute".
Trees, trees, and more trees - some extremely tall for this country! What fun to watch them sway in the breeze.
I wonder what a moose was doing up this high? She probably was avoiding the "city" below in the Silverjack area and the Little Cimarron. From above, it literally looked like a city of campers, motorhomes, etc. I'm glad I was up here too - above that mess.
View of Sheep Mountain just after leaving the trail head. This is why I hike. These views are tucked away all over these San Juan mountains.
Looking down on Silverjack Reservoir and the city of campers.
View up the Cimarron East fork. The middle fork is in the far right of the picture. The brown area in the lower left is the East Fork fire site from a couple years ago.
Gopro camera setup taking a timelapse.
Lady on a Rock (Joann) - upper right. The Sneffels Range is in the far background, above and beyond Owl Creek Pass.
Cottontail rabbits were all over the road on the way out. I don't know what attracted them to the road, but we'd come around a corner and see 8 or 10 of them out on the road. What a wonderful day in God's great outdoors with the love of my life!
