Fayette Lake

Saturday, I was invited to take a horseback ride to Fayette Lake, north east of Pinedale. What a beautiful day! The town of Pinedale celebrated their annual rendezvous days this weekend, so I was on hand for this year’s Fr. DeSmett Mass, which commemorates the first Mass in the Rockies, 1840. Fr.

In the break between the two gatherings, Fr. Lucas drove me around the area to try to find some moose.  We saw three moose yesterday morning on the way to Boulder, and this afternoon, we saw five.  We also saw about […]
