Come Ride the Rockies

Sometimes, when you look closely, you can see the falcon in the snow - Wings cupped for the strike and talons braced for the kill.  You may think you can hear the scream.  The warning of the kill that freezes the prey as it echoes through the valleys and beyond.

In 1963, my husband discovered the remnants of a town above Williams Creek Lake near Pagosa Springs, Colorado.  There, he saw a huge brass bell on the floor of an old structure.  It was inscribed, ‘1864’.  After much research, I learned that the bells were from Salt Lake City, and sent out with each expedition to settle a new area.  If you ever have occasion to walk the Rocky Mountains along the Great Divide, stop and listen -

You, too, may find yourself, Beyond The Falcon.  All the best – S.M. Starkey
