After Sedalia, we drove to Deckers, Colorado. This is a scenic drive and we love it.
There are not many homes here, but the mountains, trees and river are so peaceful and beautiful. This area is home to the Upper South Platt Forest Restoration Program.
Aren’t the trees pretty?
This is a great area for fishing.
These men seem to be having a good time in the river. The area southwest of Denver has many old trees.
This is the story of the Old Trees. **Like many stories, all was not happy.
This shows a 300-year-old pine tree with fire scars. We love our Colorado mountains and rivers with the bright blue Colorado sky.
But all humans have a responsibility to be careful and keep our state beautiful. A minute of carelessness can result in scenes like this.
Even years later, with new growth emerging, the devastation caused by fires is very visible.
But, on a happier side, this is the Colorado we all love and try to preserve.
Let’s keep Colorado and all states looking like this.
