Capitalism At It’s Best

Nope. The right leg is an "ad" for "Columbia Savings" This it is simply capitalism at its best (or worst perhaps).

Old Sign?

Was there a wood shortage? Did the builders of the park need to steal the sign leading to the Federated Women’s Club of Delta?

Good Company

The cat tail is not really all that lonely, but not all seem as intent on exploding.

Furry Friend

Well not really, but this lone cat tail is about to explode!

And Some are Big

Not all of the water in the park is in ponds. In this case it almost seems like there may be some small rivers.

Some are small

The trails in the park wind through marshy areas, some small some large, that cover this confluence. I suspect it makes for a good place to watch wildlife.

Need a taller post

Confluence Park is a nice area in NW Delta where the Uncompahgre and Gunnison rivers come together. I do think however they need a few less rules, or perhaps a taller sign post.

You Should See The Tree!

Montrose, some 20 miles to the south of Delta seems to have a bit of a different climate. I guess it was easier to erect a barricade as opposed to moving this cone when it fell………or perhaps, it is the start of an art war between Delta and Montrose…..

Hey, what about me!

Late last fall, some of the corn fields in the area were cut down, but others are still up today! I am told that it has a lot to due with how wet the fields are, but I suspect if a field is still up in February, there is not much to salvage.

Say Cheese

Mom & Dad were not the only ones enjoying the snow & the views!

In the description of my blog, I mention that this is a place “where the deserts of Utah give way to the Rocky Mountains”. I think this picture pretty much shows that.

Back on September 12th, I showed you where the cows play in the summer, but now it's our turn to play. Powderhorn Ski Area, about an hour from Delta, lived up to it's name this week!

Dobie Mud

The Dobies are a very fun place to photograph, but they have a dark side. Remember, the Dobies are essentially mud hills, and when things warm up as they did this week, they show their true colors. This mighty warrior from 2/7 found out the hard way, and was brought down to size as a result.

Circle of Friends

Hey (or “Hay" if you prefer) everyone needs a circle of friends!

The Wal-Mart is open 24 hours a day in Delta, but I am not sure everyone knows. One of the loneliest jobs in Delta must be the graveyard shift for the Wal-Mart greeter.

Old Fashion Drive In

In the mood for a hamburger while you sit in your car and enjoy the cool of the night? This Sonic drive in is for you then.

This is Your Car

This is your car on rail road tracks……Any questions? They actually park this trailer around town near various rail road crossings. Somewhat effective I think.

For All Your Feeding Needs

Have you considered your feeding needs lately? (click picture to zoom)

Here’s Looking at You

Are you here to bust me out of here, or what?

Lighting The Way

Old fashion street lamps can be found all along Main Street, making it a pleasant place to take a stroll

A Glimpse Into The Past

Compared to many of the cities represented by daily blogs, a 115 year old building may not seem all that old, but considering how quickly many western cities sprung up, this is really rather amazing. A lot of effort is put into preserving the old buildings, so perhaps many generations to come will get a glimpse into the past.

Don’t Tread on Me

I want food, water, and I want it now…..Oh yea, I'll take that cat too.....but please de-claw her first.

Water Water Everywhere

Ok, I admit it, this is not Delta. You won’t find this much water within a thousand miles of my town, however, the water from the Gunnison could very likely end up here in San Francisco Bay, perhaps........ Ok, maybe that is a stretch, but I am certain many a Californian drink water that went through Delta in its recent history.

One of the nice things about Delta is that I can easily get to the west coast for business. I can catch a 6:30am flight out of Grand Junction, and be to the office in LA before many of the locals. I do enjoy the trip home much more however.

Super Sunday

Much of America came to a stop yesterday afternoon to watch a battle from the heartland. The Chicago Bears took on the Indianapolis Colts in the Super Bowl, but they have now gone into hibernation for what will most likely be a long winter for them. Our church got together in the kids area to watch the game on a big screen, eat chili, fellowship, and raise some money for “Speed The Light”. The game was actually pretty good as well!

Funny You Should Ask

It is funny you should ask Annie (see yesterday’s comments). We have looked over the Delta housing market rather extensively, and have not found anything we want to buy. One place caught our eye however. We looked it all over, and it was ok, but when I was standing outside, I bust out laughing. Up on the chimney, in brick, were the initials of my last name, and my wife’s maiden name. The frown however confirmed that this was not the place for us.

You Asked for an "A" ?

So a couple of days ago, Photowannabe was looking for an A in a place it really did not exist, so today I will give her the real thing! I hope she does not notice the “V” in the window…….

I have been in California and swamped with work all this week, and have not been able to tour the other daily photo sites, but do appreciate all of you that visit my site so regularly. Thanks so much!

Winter Sunset

The sun made a good attempt, but it was unable to melt off the snow on the dobies.

Give Me A “K”

Back on 1/10/07, we gave you options if your name was Edward, Eisner, Eli, but the Kaisers, Kowalskies, and Koles were out of luck. Well no longer…
