Colorado Part II

Linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences  and NF Winged

As you can see I am not very original with my titles.. I have so many photos from Colorado and the Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park.. Visiting the national parks in the USA is something hubby and I love to do.. The scenery is usually beautiful and I can always find birds and critters.. And for this post I also found some fences for Tex's Good Fence meme and some sky shots for Skywatch Friday. And a cute Ruby-crowned Kinglet for NF Winged..  I hope you enjoy!


 The historic site in the park had many fences that did not go unnoticed by me..


 Two brown dots way in the distance are another female moose and her calf. I stayed behind this fence, I knew this would look good for my Good Fence post..





More views of the Rocky Mountains and yes another fence.. 


A Ruby-Crowned Kinglet was seen while hiking on a trail next to the Colorado River.


For two nights we enjoyed watching the sunset over the Granby Lake. 


The moon was beautiful during our two nights stay on the west side of the Rocky Mountain Nat'l Park.


I hope you enjoyed my post and photos
To see more pretty skies from around the world please visit  Skywatch Friday
and check more fence shots at Tex's Good Fences
and for anything that has wings check out NF Winged

Thanks to Tex @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences and to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday also thanks to Monica of NF Winged!   I wish everyone a safe and happy long weekend.

I'm thinking I would love to be there right now soaking in the peacefulness and fresh air. I don't think I've ever seen a fence quite like that one before. And I love the Kinglet!

I've been keeping up with your photographs from your vacation on Facebook. I wanted to stop by on your blog, though, to say hi:-) I had to chuckle when I read you are not very original on your blog titles. I'm not either, if you check out, my Ohio weekend blog titles LOL
