Where the hell is Dred?

Been on the road since the 21st of August, and finally getting some interesting shots, and wanted to share.

From 2 weeks back.

Nobody explained this bus had 4-wheel drive?

Bounces like a school bus, but climds like a goat. Can't do this in a Winnebago



And, a 200-foot precipice

Thx for the great pics.

If I was there, I would not have come back.

Looks like heaven to me.

Four days outside of Silverton, and I am worn out from climbing up and down the mountains. I bet I climbed and descended 100,0000 feet.

Parked outside of Silverton, Co. The view could not be any better.



There was a full moon shining into the valley




The mountains and the rivers were made of gold







And a shot from inside a mine shaft I discovered - still has the rails and bed inside. Too bad I had no flashlight



Working on a video the next couple days, while my body recovers.

This morning I was inspired to grab an old John Wayne picture – The Searchers. Look closely you can see The Duke riding towards us.
