Is This a Ranch or a Zoo??

After our beautiful US 50 ride, we maneuver through Pueblo and make our way to Monte’s Ranch in Colorado.  He has prepared a lean-to covered area for us and the RV just fits in this space.  While we are here, Storm and Monte plan to work for a few weeks on cattle guards for the ranch.  This ranch is off a couple dirt roads, way off the Interstate – very remote and teaming with wildlife.

To get supplies, I occasionally make the 3 hour round trip drive to Pueblo.  The last time I made a supply run, the temp was 105 degrees and my groceries almost cooked in the jeep before I could get back to the ranch.  Pursuant to Sunny’s Survival Code, Section 54.9(c) which includes paragraphs (i) Avoiding woman eating animals and (ii) Remaining an unmelted person, I will be seeking refuge inside my air conditioned RV during most of our stay here.  And yes, N. Clement, there are definitely rattlesnakes here.  I just hope they stay out of my coach!

Wildlife at Monte’s Ranch

This monster bear greets us on our arrival – yikes it is twice as big as me!

Baby Antelope

Fox in the yard right in front of our RV
Millions of hummingbirds here – this one exhausted itself trying to get out of the building but others think I am a juicy flower.  It’s a little scary when they flock around my head and try to sample my nectar!
Fish at Market
Wait a minute – this is not at Monte’s Ranch! These harmless fish are at the Asian Market in Denver – Happy Birthday next week, Myong!!

    Looks like a Zoo to me, I didn’t see one cow in any of the pictures. Is Charlie going to learn how to ride a horse while you all are there too? ;>) Sure is pretty, but a long way from a Bo’s for coffee. :>))) Thanks for sharing. See ya in Oshkosh. GOD BLESS
