Top of Tin Cup Pass Colorado

Our dog, Coal (who is black as coal and also has his name spelled Cole sometimes), looks like he thinks the WWII seats were redone with perfect padding for him. The human riders grew in their appreciation of the rough ride soldiers must have had in these minimally padded seats. Coal is part Mastiff, St. Bernard, Australian Shepherd, Collie  and totally lovable mix of a few other breeds of dog from Hanover Colorado. This is Cactus Rose the Jeep rescued from the crusher now making to the timberline passes of Colorado. Photo by my husband Ragan. Corawithcamera@BlogSpot.com copyright July 2014.

Baron made the trip and the restoration possible for Mr. Grey, the owner and his Grandfather. He worked hand in hand for hours, days, months and years now with Ragan Simpich, jeep rescuer, and Mr. Grey. Photo by my husband Ragan. Corawithcamera@BlogSpot.com copyright July 2014.
