Welcome back. The Loch Ness Monster, Yeti and closer to Oklahoma, the mutliated cattle myseries and recently a sighting of “Big Foot” in the southern Rocky Mountains have all been on my mind. The people who investigate these other worldly occurences are called cryptozoologists and after my visit to San Luis, Colorado to investigate a calf mutilation I guess I may be part one, too.
I am bringing this up because during a recent trip to the Sangre de Christo mountain range in New Mexico with local photography guru Jerry Poppenhouse we discovered a hidden underground stream in a remote area. We wanted to explore further but the sun was setting on the last day of our trip and time ran out. I guess its just the cryptozoologist in me but I have to go back.
This is the official announcement that Jerry will hold his second free photo workshop on the 200,000 acre UUBar Ranch on June 13-15, 2013. I am looking forward to returning. Whether its the photo workshop, looking for traces of early mankind or maybe discovering the fountain of youth, I don’t think you’ll want to miss this. There will be limited capacity so call Jerry at (918) 333-9507 or check out the poster on this website.
Another trip that’s coming up is Loretta’s annual Christmas ski trip to Angel Fire and Red River. For new skiers, these two ski areas are the closest to northeastern Oklahoma. The family friendly Angel Fire has easy slopes for every level of skier and offers activities in the club house for all ages. Red River offers a more challenging ski slope and a charming Swiss Mountain syle village filled with shops and restaurants. After a recent snow storm both ski resorts are making snow for opening day. I can’t wait. Expect a snow report from now until Christmas.
