Hovenweep National Monument, Colorado

Yesterday we left the motorhome at the American Legion Post #75 in Cortez, Colorado and I drove our Ford Bronco II the almost 100 mile circuitous loop to Hovenweep National Monument.

Here’s the official government website link…

and a Wikipedia informational link…

In today’s photographs you will notice something new. I shot everything in an illustration mode…it creates the illusion that the pictures were drawn by an illustrator of a magazine…prior to the invention of the camera. I really like the illusion, as in my eyes, it makes everything look pre-historic. It’s a little creative photography…done inside of the camera!

We managed to walk the two-mile rim trail of Little Ruin Canyon…slowly…as I’m still experiencing the pains of the tragic accident eleven days ago.

Here are some photos that I took…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

Yesterday and last night my chest pains started returning. Guess I’ve been doing too much, too fast after the tragic accident. Easy to do when you hang around with Mary.  🙂

    Before you leave Cortez you should check out the huge antique/junk store just on the outskirts of town as you come into town on 666. My wife noticed it as we drove south to Albuquerque a couple months ago and she insisted we stop and explore it on way back home.
    It’s huge and full of the most interesting things.
    I enjoy your blog. Hope you feel better soon.

  2. Take it easy … I really like the illustrator mode – it looks just like they have been painted – real neat!

    I liked Mary’s pictures better. We have added that to our list for this fall. We have stayed at the Elk’s many times in Cortez but somehow missed this.
