My son, Mason, was selected as a national finalist for the National FFA Organization’s national profiency award in Outdoor Recreation – Entrepreneurship/Placement.  He was one of only four people in the nation selected to compete for the this award …at the 86th National FFA Convention in Louisville, KY!    Profiency awards recognize outstanding student achievement in agribusiness gained through establishment of a new business, working for an existing company or otherwise gaining hands-on career experience.  As many of you know, Mason works for our family business, Sable Mountain Outfitters, and does an outstanding job within all areas of the business.  In recognition of being a national finalist, Mason received this plaque and $500 sponsored by Yamaha Motor Corporation, USA. Way to go Mason!  We are so proud of you!!!Mason @ National FFA

Springtime in the Rockies!  We finally made it into Marvine Lake and this is what our Marvine Lake Camp site looks like on May 31, 2010.  We rode our horses through the snow to make it melt more quickly.  We’ll go back soon with shovels to do more work to prepare the site.

May 28, 2010 Clearing down timber from the Marvine Trail

We are busy now breaking trail into Marvine Lake and preparing to set our Marvine Lake Camp.  See the link below to our facebook page to view the photo album for more pictures.

This photo was taken by Gene of our horses grazing near our Marvine Lake Camp on the Flat Tops Wilderness.  The Flat Tops Wilderness Area  is the 2nd largest Wilderness area in Colorado at 235,214 acres and was designated in 1975.

“If future generations are to remember us with gratitude rather than contempt, we must leave them something more than the miracles of technology.  We must leave them a glimpse of the world as it was in the beginning, not just after we got through with it.”  -President Lyndon B. Johnson on signing the Wilderness Act of 1964

This photo was taken yesterday by the County Road Crew,  just below the Marvine Campground located at the Marvine Trailhead.  Colorado Division of Wildlife brought in 19 moose in 2009 and 20 moose in January, 2010.  We are very excited about having moose in the area.  Several of our hunters were lucky enough to get a glimpse of them last Fall.  The plan is to be able to hunt them sometime in the future.   We are definitely looking forward to that!

A question that is often asked of me this time of year is, “How was your Winter and how did the elk do over the Winter?”.   I recently read that our snow pack for the winter was 76% and that we can expect a dry 2010.  The elk have therefore done very well this winter.  Stay tuned for an update on this page from the Colorado Division of Wildlife on the current conditions of our elk herd.
