shed
Where dogs were once kept by the previous property owner. Andrew says the feral cat he saw carrying a rabbit lives here now.
 
white
Growing all around Andrew’s house.
 

porch
8 acres of home sweet home.
 
in cognito
This guy.
 

Greg and Andrew
Greg and his cousin Andrew.
 

view
Lizard’s POV.
 

geese
A gaggle gather roadside waiting to cross. A car already stopped and let one group by. Another 30 minutes went by before another car stops to let them cross. Most speed by or slow down and honk at, as if they are the only beings that have some place they want to get to.
 

between liquor store and pizza place
This one located between a liquor store and pizza place. Legalized, retailed and marketed. Open until 7pm. The most bizarrely mundane acquisition of obtaining da reefer ever.
 

puma
Lea and Ed’s new kitten. A frisky little thing developing its pounce and kill techniques on unsuspecting ankles, toes, and hands trying to pet him. Tuka’s cuteness somehow makes it all okay.
 

tunnel
Tunnel.
 

ampitheater
Runners, locals, reading, kids, cameras, lunch, tourists breathing heavy in the thin air while they take quick darting looks at red rocks beyond cell phone screens. 3pm adds grills, dreds, beer, music and folding chairs to the mix. Territories are marked as tailgate parties coalesce in PLs. Excited voices fill the air greeting one another and carrying on. All to be followed by Widespread Panic starting in a few hours.
 

eggs
Two eggs, sunny side.
 

feather
Who does this belong to?
 

everywhere
Giant dandelion-looking flower gone to seed.
 

Denver
View of Denver from Red Rocks.
 

purple
 
Hello purple flower. I love you.
no fear
Like I wasn’t even there. Or 10-ft away.
 

milkweed
Bigger out here. Giant milkweed buds in a16-oz plastic cup. Mmmmm!
 

kitten
Tuka’s cuteness must be shared once again! But in a more menacing way!
