Rust ~ Post No.12

My friend Jane sent me this picture. What a marvellous old truck, I thought. Jane said this: 

Seen near Maroon Lake, in the shadow of the Maroon Bells, the most photographed mountains in Colorado. And I took a photo of a truck?

To which I say: Thanks Jane for thinking of me, you are becoming a regular contributor to my Rust posts and I love it! You don't often see a truck like this and I'm so glad you decided to stop and take its picture.

Rusty old things, particularly trucks, are growing on me as I'm posting them here. In a way I feel I'm honoring them. If that makes any sense. 

Finally, thank you for your comments on my Silver Linings post. I am feeling much better now. I said in my other post that I missed Errol when I got ill so suddenly, but everyone in my life stepped up, were concerned, and helped me. I didn't know all this at first, but I do now. So, to quote my blogger friend: Life Is Good!

Maroon Bells, Colorado 


  1. Hi Inger - it's a lovely photo and with the lake looks a delightful area to visit ... we've all got rusty bits and bobs around our areas.

    It's good to see you around again and to understand how you are feeling ... the blogging world is a great community, as too are your local friends and family ... take care and with many thoughts to you and your four legged pals .. cheers Hilary

  2. Hi Inger, wow, now there's a nice old truck. Who ever own that old truck has a treasure. I was looking on line about old trucks for sale and they have some restored and are selling at an incredible price. It still looks very sturdy...

    I'm so glad that you are feeling better and that you have discovered that your friends and neighbours are there for you. It's a nice feeling.
    Enjoy the rest of August.
    Hugs, Julia

  3. How cool is that to have a friend think of your 'hobby?' It is indeed a gorgeous piece of the past! You sound so much better now. Hugs!

  4. Life is good Inger, I'm glad you are feeling better.

  5. Somehow I feel the urge to make that truck all better once more. Such a grand vehicle.
    So glad you are doing better. Keep up the good vibes.

  6. May your life continue to be good!!

  7. I wonder how old that truck is, maybe the 1930's.

    I am glad you are feeling better and have been attended to by people who care about you very much.

  8. What a neat old truck that is, rust and all.

  9. That's a great truck. I'm glad people were there for you.

  11. There definitely is a beauty to these rusted old trucks! I always think about the service they've undoubtedly performed! It's a great photo. And it's so good to hear that you're doing better and well, Inger. We all need a little encouragement from time to time!

  12. beautiful place, a month from now I´ll be visiting Yellowstone :) Big grin :)
    And, yes, the farm is in Sweden. Not far from where I live.

    1. I lived in Jackson Hole for a wonderful fall and winter. You will love it there.

  13. The truck makes me wonder about who owned it before, what they did, and so many other things. The "I wonders" of life fill me with wonder.

    Happy that you are feeling better.

  14. That truck is a great reminder of how scientific phenomenon can be looked at with living eyes and can be honored as an artistic reality.
    That scene is stunning and beautiful photography. Thanks.

  15. I am so glad that you are feeling better and that your friends stepped up when you needed them.

    That is a fabulous old truck - a great photo!

    I'm sorry that I've been absent - we took a 3 week trip into the wilderness with no internet. We're back now, and I'm excited to catch up!
