Sometimes there are just dog-dandy days....and Fall in the mountains is at the top of that list!
Chama, New Mexico, is tucked at the base of the San Juan Mountains of the Rockies and it is just glorious in the Fall. The golden leaves of the Aspen and Cottonwood trees scattered amongst the tall stately green pines make for a mighty fine picture...in my humble dog-pinion!
Yep..why it's such a popular time to view the mountain beauty that we get all sorts of great visitors to the Elkhorn Lodge....some are great people guests...and some are even mighty old and fine.......
antiques....like these fab-tabulous old-timey Model A Ford cars.
We were SO excited to have the POCO QUATROS Model A Ford Club come visit us at the Elkhorn Lodge.....to toodle around Chama in classic style....and to even ride on our old timey steam train, the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad!
Why there were even some awesome old-fashioned Pick-up Trucks!
WoW....I really dig this one!
Another classic Model A...and another new friend....gotta make sure everyone gets a dog-personal welcome from Travelin' Jack. Yup....this pUp is UP for the schmoozin'!

But now...I'm doggone tuckered out from all this mountain roamin'....it's been a grand day in this pup's life...and I'm ready to head home for a little R & R....so see ya down the road......
