Well it is the best moose picture I ever shot. Those dang moose are elusive. We have heard about moose in Cement Creek for years. My neighbor got an evening shot that could be mistaken for a chupacabra.
But these guys were out in the early evening. Hanging with the horses. Long, gangly legs flopping as they meandered away from our position like shiftless teenagers looking for fun.
Hooray for the reintroduction of Moose to the Rockies. Now we have lions, deer, elk, bears, moose, coyotes, wolves, badgers, eagles, hawks and grouse and ……raccoon, porcupines, ferrets, ermine, beavers, rabbits, hares, fox, bobcat…
It took awhile-years really. But the user and shipper-friendly sample program is working. I just filled a bunch of sample requests today. If you enjoy Camp4Coffee, you may know others stranded in a “Coffee Desert” who would enjoy becoming familiar with a great cup of Joe.
You will see an email soon that includes a ‘Link” for “Send a Friend Camp4”. Click it, fill in your friends address, add a note if you like, and we will get it on the way. This is an easy way to poke your coffee-loving friends, expose them to quality beans and help us grow our shipping program. With luck, we will double this year.
Thank you for your help exercising the new site and the old warehouse guys. This is fun.
This flag is a replica of the flag flown over the Continental Army commanded by George Washington at the Siege of Boston, 1775-1776. The Pine tree was a common symbol of liberty in the New England colonies. It proved to be good choice. Happy Independence Day everybody.
There are moments that remind me why I live here. Pasque flowers up Cement Creek after the snow melts. Fresh green translucent Aspen leaves. And the needles that push when a Colorado Spruce is happy and growing. There are soft, flexible and fragrant. Enjoy.
The Camp4Roasting Room is packed with orders ready to be delivered to the post office. I will need to bring a rack of lattes to placate the Postal staff. Thanks to all the good folks who helped us test the new website. We are grateful, and tired. Thanks also to all who made comments on how to make it useful. We implemented many of your ideas. I believe we will continue with the “Extra Pound” special until 6/21. If you are looking for a value in coffee gifts for friends, this is one. Use us. Wear me out. I dare you……I Double Dog Dare you…… Al.
This is my first ice axe. My father gave it to me so I would be safe in the mountains. It went to Alaska and the Eastern Sierra. It saved a mountain guide’s life. And mine. It looked different when it was new. Now, it works in the garden at Camp4Coffee.
