081222 CKC August Challenge #1 - Lost or Found?

Master Forger of Ceremonies Julene has chosen a travel themed kit & the CKC Challenge #1 this month will follow suit! 

Getting lost or finding something along the way.

I'm still working on pages from our epic trip this past spring. Two of our destinations were Canyonlands & Arches National Parks in Utah. Early that morning we stumbled upon a sign on our way out of Colorado & followed it to...

A fragile checkerboard of ancient sights scattered across 164,000 acres of high desert in the southwest corner of Colorado in the Great Sage Plain. 24 native tribes claim cultural affiliation, along with generations of farming & ranching families, they continue to have traditional & modern relationships with this landscape.

This area was the epicenter of Ancestral Puebloan communities. This enormous monument is a difficult place to navigate & there are just a few areas ready for the public to explore. It is an area to discover on your own, if you are prepared for the adventure of a lifetime.


It was the beautifully preserved ruin of the Lowry Pueblo community...

We were completely alone in that sunrise golden hour & explored to our heart's content. If we ever return to that part of the country we will see more of the land & it's few remaining pueblos, along with the visitor center & museum at Delores, Colorado.

I gutted my forged southwestern paper to create the border (and save a big hunk of that pretty paper, perhaps for other pages about this trip!) 

I'm looking forward to hearing about some interesting stories! Be sure to post to the Facebook Counterfeit Kit Community & don't miss the next challenge & the rest of the month:
