Bountiful, Road Trip, Colorado

Bountiful, road trip on Highway 285, Colorado. There’s lots to see in the San Luis Valley, one of the most bountiful agricultural areas in the country. Bountiful, on the north/south route has large grain silos holding barley for the Coors beer company. This is the sign between the highway and railroad tracks. I found the weathering rather interesting and worthy of a picture. Thanks for looking. G

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
