Wrangler Jim Lives!

In 1985 I was a wrangler at Colorado Trails Ranch in Durango, Colorado. While I am a decent horseman, with thousands of hours in the saddle, at least 90% of that time was in an English saddle. All the same, I have my western-looking chaps, and this is my current cowboy hat. I got the duds out for a gala and posed for some photos ahead of time. The black and white is from that shoot. The color photo was taken after ascending Mount Timpanogos on a 7.5 hour roundtrip hike on September 16, with about 4,000 feet of elevation gain from trailhead to summit.

Posing in my backyard. My decrepit garage has a nice old barn look to it.
