Barley Silos, Bountiful, Colorado

Barley silos, and grain elevator in the hamlet of Bountiful, Colorado. The sign (I’m paraphrasing) reads, “all the barley is for the Coors brewing company”. The community of Bountiful is on the Denver and Rio Grande Western Railroad, between Romeo to the south and La Jara to the north. It was great day out on a photo tour in the San Luis Valley exploring old homesteads, ruins, farms and barns, with hawks and eagles. Heading up there again tomorrow on another photo tour . Thanks for looking. G

Grain Elevator With Hay Bales

Grain elevator with hay bales, Jaroso, Colorado. We took a twilight drive on the snow melt and muddy back roads in the San Luis Valley. We traveled north to the Colorado state line with the setting sun in our rear view mirror. Shortly after crossing the state line in we came across this scene of hay bales with the grain elevator at Anderson’s farm. The blue hues of twilight and the warm tones of the hay bales made this abstract scene glow. Beyond, the snow packed peaks of the Rocky Mountains faded into the evening haze. Thanks for looking. G
