|Northeast side trail bowls of sleeping remnants of elk who lay keeping warm in the southern sun.|
|On foot with a Brother of mine packing out meat, anything killed up here and you're damn lucky if the sun is still up. I think that day it got up to a whopping 11 degrees.|
|Gathering some pitch-pine across the gorge bridge for the gigantic bonfires on Christmas eve, truck looks small but its a full 3/4 ton Indian truckee|
|Snowy morning not sure what day this was, everything was hazy after the world was supposed to end heehee. you know I think this was the day 12-21... Welcome to my beginning.|
|Packing it all in and packing it all out. There was no food for the horses so you bring bags of feed but it makes the horse feisty and hot, but a mile into the thick snow calms them down.|
|Bring good thoughts and food, something sweet to share - a story, a
picture, a secret and a smile will get you far in the cold northern nights
of the sangre de cristos.|
My people are farmers, hunters, botanists, scientists, mechanics, veterinarians, butchers, comedians and love makers and much more - singers, dancers, story tellers and eaters.
We have survived because we are needed here today to remind everyone that sleeping on the raw earth, eating from what mother gives you and blesses you with, might not be so dumb after all.
Love and honor and happy holidays.
Your Man MIRABAL
