I spent today in Greenback cutthroat and blue grouse country in the Sangre De Cristo Mountains outside of Westcliffe, Colorado.
It was a glorious day!
The dogs and I found some blue grouse, but I messed it up when I was trying to get a photo of my Elhew pointer on point…the grouse blew out, and I missed the photo and never fired a shot! The older I get, the more I enjoy the photos of my dogs on point! Although, I do love to eat blue grouse cooked on the grill with olive oil and lemon pepper! I’m gonna have to get serious about grouse (for dinner) next week!
I was able to fool a few colorful Greenbacks and brookies…the brookies are spawning and wearing their gorgeous Fall colors! Ants and beetles were just the ticket today!
I finished the day at a wonderful restaurant in Westcliffe, CO called Cel Dor Asado which is a traditional Uruguayan wood fired grill. The meal was incredible! If you ever get out his way, I would strongly recommend it!
