2 Peterson's to Yuma X 2

BART AND I DECIDED TO HEAD ON OUT TO YUMA AGAIN THIS WEEKEND.

WE HAD SO MUCH FUN..

I LOVE THE SCENERY. SOME OF IT, LIKE THIS WINDMILL, SEEM TO MAKE US THINK WHAT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN LIKE TO LIVE 100 YEARS AGO..

THIS WAS ONE OF THE UNIQUE FIELDS WE HUNTED, WE DID NOT ACTUALLY SEE A PHEASANT IN THIS FIELD, BUT IT WAS SURE BEAUTIFUL.

THE WIND WAS BLOWING AND IT WAS CHILLY, YOU KNOW THAT REFRESHING KIND OF CHILLY.. BRRR... BUT INVIGORATING AT THE SAME TIME..

BART IS EVEN BUNDLED UP

LOTS OF LAYERS AND A LEOPARD SKIN EAR WARMER.. WHAT EVERY HUNTER NEEDS.. HA HA

THIS ONE WAS FOR DAN..

THIS TRACTOR WAS SITTING OUT IN A FIELD, I THOUGHT OF MY SON IN LAW WHEN I SAW IT AND MADE BART TAKE MY PICTURE FOR HIM.


WELL... MAYBE THE NEXT FIELD WILL BE MORE SUCCESSFUL.
WE ACTUALLY SAW MORE PHEASANTS THEN IN ANY OTHER YEAR PRIOR.. THEY JUST SEEMED TO FLY UP WAY OUT AHEAD.. WE'LL GET UM NEXT TIME.. :)
WE SAW SO MANY FUN THINGS ON THIS TRIP.. WE SAW ABOUT 30 PHEASANTS, MULE DEER, LARGE WHITE TAIL BUCK,GREAT WINDMILLS, BEAUTIFUL SUNSETS, BUNNIES, GREAT OLD TRACTORS, COOL OLD BUILDINGS, MILES OF FARMED FIELDS, AN OLD CHEVY TRUCK, CHILDREN HUNTING WITH THEIR DADDY'S, AN OLD WATER WELL PUMP. BUT THE MOST AWESOME THING WE SAW WHILE PHEASANT HUNTING THIS YEAR ON THE COLORADO PLAINS... WAS.....
A 4 POINT BULL ELK...
BART WAS HUNTING IN A FIELD.. I WAS BACKING THE EXPEDITION UP TO MEET HIM AT THE END OF THE HILL, WE HAD SEEN A MULE DEER IN THIS AREA EARLIER IN THE DAY, AS I WAS LOOKING IN MY SIDE MIRROR, I SAW AN ANIMAL IN THE ROAD ABOUT 400 YARDS BEHIND ME.. I THOUGHT WHAT A LARGE DEER.. THEN I LOOKED AGAIN.. IT WAS NOT A DEER, BUT A BULL ELK.. I WAS IN SHOCK.. HAD TO LOOK A FEW TIMES TO MAKE SURE I WAS SEEING WHAT I THOUGHT I WAS SEEING.. HERE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE EASTERN PLAINS OF COLORADO (FARM LAND) I WAS LOOKING AT A BULL ELK.. I POINTED TO IT AS BART ALSO SPOTTED IT, WE DROVE TOWARDS IT.. IT WAS RUNNING THROUGH THE FIELDS.. WE THOUGHT THAT IT WAS GONE WHEN WE WERE HEADING BACK YO YUMA. WE LOOKED TO OUR LEFT AND HE WAS RUNNING PARALLEL WITH OUR TRUCK ABOUT 500 YARDS OFF.. IT WAS AWESOME.. WATCHING THAT BULL RUN AT FULL SPEED.. I WAS GOING 55 MPH AND HE WAS KEEPING UP WITH ME. WHAT A MAJESTIC BEAUTIFUL ANIMAL.
AND WHAT A WONDERFUL MEMORY FOR BART AND I.
