Fortification Rocks..


Zoomed view..

I would not want to walk out there for sure...:-)





Check out that huge rattlesnake she is holding...:-)

Last one!

You never know what you will find while out exploring in the area of Craig. Moffat county is huge and includes a lot of wilderness areas. While out exploring today we ran into a most unusual volcanic lift of rocks called Fortification Rocks.

I could not find a lot of information about the area, only that it is believed several American Indian tribes used the formations for fortifications before battle. Today, this area is known as home to a large number of rattlesnakes. Yikes! I am adding a picture from the area showing a little girl holding a huge dead rattlesnake. Like I said, you never know what you will find in this area.:-)

Exploring the area around Craig is like going back in time to the very old west. We will be leaving in a few days and there are still hundreds of places we didn’t get a chance to visit. We may have to make another months reservation in the area later on. It was another exciting day in Craig, check back later for more.
