Just a little road trip..

Nichole and I packed up the girls and took a trip to the mountains. With it being the peak of the fall foliage no time was better to welcome the fall season.


We headed up to the Guanella Pass area to take a little hike up in search of some ptarmigan. Again, searching is the key word here. Going on a hot tip that ptarmigan were in this general vicinity I thought it might be an easy hunt! Wrong, this area looked like it held birds but with all the foot traffic from all the hikers my forecast of a full game bag quickly diminished as I watch every hiker look at me like I had 5 heads! Like they never saw a hunter before!
It was great none the less. We did see some great sights and it was good to get away for the day.
Here are some pictures from the day. Enjoy!

Matt,

I enjoyed this post. The pictures are beautiful. I think it is cool that your wife will go hunting with you. The first time I took my wife hunting she cried when I shot a ruffie. Needless to say, she has not been too keen on going with ever since.
