June 8, 2014 Buckles Lake

Another adventurous day!!  Today we drove to Buckles Lake, which is about 20 miles or so from Pagosa Springs and then back in the boonies another 10 miles or so.  Dale had his eye out today for wildlife and he did spot a elk cow and a couple of deer.  I was supposed to be on the lookout for any signs of wildlife but I cannot see them if you shoved them in my face!!  Here he is driving on these switch back roads (I call them snaking) with drop offs on a constant basis and he still manages to spot these things!!  Scary, huh?!?   Today was a bit cooler and we had some rain come through but not until we returned to the RV.   After hiking down to the lake, about a mile, we took some pics,enjoyed the scenery, and headed back the mile to the Jeep.  This is some great exercise for sure. The path going to the lake was a breeze - it was all down hill!  You know what that means!  What goes down must come up and it was challenging to return to the Jeep!  Keeps us in shape!  Dale is enjoying this so much he has been researching what we need to properly dress and carry when we hike.  No telling what he has planned!  Following are our pics. Sorry for so many pics of flowers but I just love looking at the different wild flowers.
