About Today’s Photo:
On our recent trip out west, we spent a few days in the tiny (and funky!) town of Crestone, Colorado on the edge of the Sangre de Cristo mountains overlooking the great San Luis Valley. We had a 4th floor room with a stunning “500 mile” view of the valley. Each morning this pair of western bluebirds would perch in top of the junipers which would put them right at eye level for our lofty adobe abode.
