Good Fences #19: Ohio Pass Road

I've decided to join in on the Good Fences meme this week, hosted by Theresa at the Run A Round Ranch. Several bloggers have posted their images of beautiful, creative or unusual fences there. Although I don't have any recent photos of fences to share, I do have a few older images of  fences from my travels.  I'm going to start paying closer attention to fences when I'm out and about so I can share them with you.  

The photos below were taken along Ohio Pass Road in Colorado as my husband and I traveled toward the town of Crested Butte. I particularly favored the old barns on open, grassy fields with mountains in the background.  Breathtaking would be the best word to describe the scenery.  


The grassy meadows lined with old wooden fences looked so inviting that I wanted to stop and visit a while at all of them.  Perhaps the next time I travel through Colorado I'll have more time to explore the plant varieties and wildlife in some of the meadows. There's no telling what I may discover!



Thank you for visiting and viewing my first Good Fences post and many thanks for sharing yours!  
Enjoy your day :)

  2. HI Susan Glad to have you on board of Tex's meme. Believe me, you will be seeing fences everywhere now. Lovely scenery in the first shot, I love the way the V of the fences are sticking up in the 2nd shot and I love the weathered fence look of the 3rd shot.

  8. Hello Susan!:) What beautiful scenery and lovely colours in the first image, and a weathered old fence in the last, definately deserves a place in Good Fences. We have walls here, not fences, but I hope to join in next week with gates.
