at Christmas I visited my brother who lives in LaVeta ( a transplant from Denver) - the hosts at the LaVeta Inn are so nice even when I locked myself out of my room, the Chucara dining was excellent and the bakery to die for- am looking forward to my next trip

Learn all about snowshoeing with Spanish Peaks Alpine Alliance!

Snowshoeing is a fun and easy way to enjoy the back country in winter. It is inexpensive and relatively easy to learn and master. However, people often need advice on what kind of snowshoes to buy and how to use them. This program will provide and overview of: proper clothing/footwear, equipment (such as packs, poles, eye ware, etc), food/hydration, and the 10 essentials needed for all back country travel.

The class room program will be held at the La Veta Public Library on January 26, from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. An on snow class will be held the next day, Sunday January 27, at 9:00 a.m. at Cuchara Mountain Park. The class is free but donations going to Cuchara Mountain Park and the Spanish Peaks Alpine Alliance will be accepted.

Beautiful picture

Every picture has a story .... While hiking the Lily Lake Trail about a half mile in there is a large meadow on the north side of the trail going up the mountain. Near the top I saw a clump of wildflowers , mom likes flowers so I had to get pictures of the flowers. While taking the pictures facing the forest I hear movement behind me and find this young cub romping in the tall grass about 15 feet away .... camera up click,click,click.... then form the deep sub-cortex of my brain comes the question , where is mom ... that quickly translates to the fore brain question ... WHERE IS MOM ? I look behind me into the forest, scan both sides then check the cubs location only to find he has moved off to the side and is now standing on his hind legs batting at a monarch butterfly. I took this opportunity by giving the cub a wide berth and hastily moved to the valley floor. After I arrived safely and ensured that I was not being chased it occurred to me, I SHOULD OF TAKEN THE PICTURE !

Cutie.

Beautiful baby.

Adorable cub 🐾❤️
