Royal Ranch's First Post

Wow!  You'd think I was planning to write a piece for the Washington Post or The New York Times with as nervous as I've been about this post.  Not actually nervous, anxious is a better word I would say.  I have to give you a little background here; I am an environmental mountain hillbilly, and darn proud of it.  My very first attempts at blogging were not quite a year ago and I did not start out like most people and start reading and commenting on blogs.  No, I jumped right in and started my own.  Why, you ask?  Because I have a lot to say, of course!
No really,  I have thought and thought about what my first post to GreenSpot-On is going to be about, I mean this is a big deal.  This fantastic blog that is dedicated to everything I believe wholeheartedly in is going nationwide!  Now, I may be a little slow when it comes to the world wide web thing, I get that the internet reaches the entire world, but when a blog has authors from all over the nation, I think that's pretty cool!
So, that's where I decided to start.  Since most of the current authors are from that lakeish (spell check doesn't speak mountain hillbilly?  Odd.)  part of the country,  I want to introduce the readers to the fantastic Rocky Mountains.  I am a native Coloradan, second generation, which is quite rare.  My husband and I have a commercial llama outfitting company that gives us ample opportunities to  take some really great pictures, so I thought I'd share some of those with you.  You can read my bio, on the right side bar to learn more about me, but I'm sure we'll get much better acquainted soon, I love feedback.

I absolutely love the photos in this post. Is that trail near your ranch or is it just a favorite spot that you go to for reflection?
