I thought there was no way that Colorado’s fall could compare to the Northeast’s... then I drove Kebler Pass to Crested Butte... What should have been a 2 hour drive turned into 4 because I couldn’t stop pulling over to click the shutter and take in the view. Highly recommended.

Every year we go to the Bright Adventure Film Festival. This year we had decided not to go for various reasons, then the devastating bushfires hit. Bright has been evacuated a couple of times as they were under threat, all tourist were told to leave just after New Year. So today, I called & booked our usual cabin with this view & ordered our tickets for the festival. I’m even taking the kids! This is how we get back on our feet. I’m not going to pack an esky full of beer & food like I usually do. I’m going to stop by the pubs & have dinner out. This will be the first of our trips exploring closer to home this year. We’re going to support those affected by visiting. If you had plans to visit Australia please don’t cancel them. We’re still open for business in most places & if you have some extra time maybe explore a bit further a field. I’m happy to help you organise your itinerary! #aussiebushfires#bushfiresaustralia#australia#cmonaussiecmon#visitaustralia#exploreaustralia#travellingwithkids

One of the most memorable duck hunting adventures of my life was Mongolia. Located north of China, there are 3 million people, 30 million head of livestock, and not a single strand of barbed wire in the land of the nomadic warrior, Ghengis Khan. We flew into Ulaanbataar and overnighted, drove several hours to a small primitive camp. The countryside sprawled to the edges of the earth. Named the Asian Steppe country, it reminded me more of Utah’s high desert landscape than of anything else. Except for the traditional round, teepee-like gers seen sparsely about. Our guide staff was extremely organized in all aspects of mobilizing and preparing camp, locating remote wetlands, keeping us fed, but know little of duck hunting. It’s not their culture. At all. But we were all real hunters. Given the situation, we put our game plans into action. On the first morning we scored swan geese, that seemed to really like the small spinning-winged decoys we’d brought, common and ruddy shelducks, eurasian wigeons, mallard, pintail, and a lone greylag goose. The big prize we’d come for, the bar-headed goose, came later. They first had to be found. There was an ancient, hand-stacked mound of stone, tall as a 3-story building, with blue-ribbon streamers and horse skulls, monument to favorite horses of these nomadic people. In the middle of nowhere was a huge headstone dated back 1100 years. Nobody knew whose it was but believe it was someone famous because the stone is not found in the entire country and had to be hand-carried many thousands of miles to get there. Those traditional gers were as energy efficient as anything you could imagine, but at night, when the tiny wood stove went out, it became so cold I’d slept under a pile of blankets so heavy that I couldn’t roll over. But that didn’t matter. It was an adventure of epic proportion. #getducks#itsduckseasonsomewhere#mongoliaduckhunting#waterfowlhunting#swangoose#mallard#shelduck#ruddyshelduck#commonshelduck#eurasianwigeon#barheadedgoose#pintail#bossmen#travelhunting#ramseyrussellgetducks#realduckhunting#ramseyrussell#conservationishunting#northamericanconservationmodel

I love looking up and seeing planes cross the horizon. I always wonder where they heck they are going?
