This is somewhat of a companion piece to Walsenburg and Fort Sumner. These were shots taken after we left Fort Sumner and were on our way to Walsenburg. We passed by the Raton-Clayton volcanic field, which includes the Capulin Volcano National Monument. The Marine was in a hurry to head north and wasn’t interested in stopping for a volcano. ~Vic
This was my view from the backdoor of our room. The lodge backed up to the Arkansas River. It was a wonderful place to vacation for Christmas and New Year’s. Sadly, the lodge had to close, permanently, due to the Plandemic/Scamdemic. It’s heartbreaking. And, as far as I am concerned, good riddance to 2022. I have hopes that 2023 will be better but…it’s not likely. I will be raising a glass of bubbly to the awakening of humanity. ~Vic
Quick edit…this is a companion piece to Walsenburg.

Memories from my years in Texas. Merry Christmas, everyone. ~Vic
My previous Tale of the Canadians took place a few months before my move with the Marine to Texas. We arrived in July 2002 and, by September, I had snagged a state job. I wouldn’t start for three weeks so, the Marine wanted to go sight-seeing (think road trip). One of the places we visited was the Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs. ~Vic
