Jersey Jim Fire Lookout Trip

June 16, 2012  •  Leave a Comment

A couple of weeks ago, Ben and I got the chance to spend the night in the Jersey Jim Fire Lookout.  It's in a beautiful spot in the aspens at about 10,000 feet in the San Juan National Forest.  We took a short hike before dinner and got to see all the wildflowers that were in bloom.

 

 It was a perfect evening.  As we were watching the sunset on the balcony, we turned around just in time to watch the full moon rise over Hesperus!  

 

 

There were tons of little Tree Swallows flying all around and living in bird houses around the Lookout.  They were very friendly, photogenic little birds, as you can see from this male that was nice enough to pose for me on our way out in the morning!

 

It was an awesome getaway - if you ever have a chance to stay at Jersey Jim I would definitely recommend it!
