Scottish Thistles

Scottish Thistles

Friday, July 7, 2017


Many years ago there was a railroad, called the "Galloping Goose" that traveled in the mountains near my home.  This photo is of Lizard Head Pass (unfortunately the Lizard Head is out of view) with a summit on the highway of 10,000 but there are three of Colorado's famous "Fourteener" peaks here as well. 
Sheep used to be herded into these pens for transportation by the train, but that no longer happens. I do think that the pens are still used, occasionally, for cattle or sheep that might be pastured in the high country in the summer.  They would be transported by trucks.
