Laugh Taking Photos

Leaving the mountains of Colorado behind



I also took a picture of my camera set-up so that you can study my spophisticated techniques



Here's the way I do it

1. Find nice photogenic loaction
2. Think about whether I can be arsed to stop bike, set up shot and then ride past a couple of times
3. Put tank bag on ground
4. Place helmet on tank bag
5. Search for tripod (it's small), when found, place it on top of helmet

which is the scene above, obviously the camera is not on the helmet yet as it's in my hands being used to take the picture

6. Put camera on tripod, set up self-time and run like hell to get on bike to ride past, only to realise I have not clicked the shutter button!
7. Return to tripod and repeat step no.6, remembering to press shutter button this time.

I htought I was out in the middle of nowhere, but just as I was doing all this, a car came by and wondered what was going on, I reassured them everything was OK.

Pissed lost the plot...

Damn, I have had to re-write this one three times now as I somehow managed to lose the previous two before getting them saved, very, very annoying.

Pictures only for the moment as I am tired of writing it all so many times - feel free to make up your own commentary until I have had a cup of tea, reagined my sense of humour and feel able to add captions/words of wisdom/idiotic ravings

After leaving the mountains, I saw a steam train go past, which made me feel as if I was in a Wild West film. I caught up with it in Durango, and for all you trainspotters out there, took a picture.



I've had a couple of conversations with Yanks about anorak-wearing trainspotters, they don't seem to exist in America, and they had no idea what I was referring to I'm sure someone with more skill than I can conjure up a picture of some typical trainspotters, and we're not talking the Danny Boyle film.

Opposite the train station was a scene that caught my eye, yes, it may well look like a garage, and I almost pulled up to one for petrol, but actually it's a drive thru bank, Americans seem to do a lot of drive-thrus including post boxes and pharmacies.

[QUOTE=Tiffany;19226285]

A nice little spot in a deserted canyon for my tent.


There were some strange noises though, the occasional coughing noise, which made me a bit nervous as they reminded me of leopards coughing in Africa. I know there aren't any leopards here, but do mountain lions cough?? Made a mental note to self to make sure that I take my tyre levers into the tent with me tonight.>QUOTE FROM TIFFANY

This was likely a Red Fox. I am on the other side of the mountains, north of Denver. Here is a link:

http://www.angelfire.com/ar2/thefoxden/sounds.html

Check out the "Fox calling out" one. We always have a lot of dens around my place in the spring and summer. Heard that exact call the other night.

I'm appreciating all the wildlife reports/feedback and general comments, glad you all enjoy reading my RR
I'll be checking out the coughing fox noise when I get a better connection currently on a very dodgy WiFi internet in a bus station.
I'll also be filling in the words for the most recent chapter and adding more..brace yourself RockyDog cos I'm about to relate my adventures in Oklahoma

Mountain Lion cough

To paraphrase a friend, "More mountain lions have seen humans, than humans seeing mountain lions." Mountain lions still exist, most assuredly, and they are magnificent to see in the wild. Enjoy your latest journey as we enjoy your ride reports and pics. Be safe...

Enjoying your writings and pics, Tiffany.

Talk of mountain lions reminded me of footage of one that made its way down to South Texas. Mountain lions were pretty much exterminated from this area quite some time ago, all I have are stories about my grandfather hunting them because they were killing livestock

Hmmm, I've listened to those noises now, and none of them sounded like the coughing noise I heard, definitely not human (there was no-one for miles) and it was about every 10 minutes or so.

Well, the only cats that would be where you were (Southwestern Colorado) would be mountain lion and bobcat. Too far north for jaguars (some in southern Arizona, I think and throughout central America). Maybe some kind of bird?

Sure is fun to try and figure it out, though!
