Pigeons on The Three Graces

Pigeons on The Three Graces

The top of The Three Graces as seen from Montezuma's Tower. This is a popular hangout for the pigeons and I worried they'd try to defend their territory when we climbed it! Luckily they left us in peace. Garden of the Gods, Colorado. June 2009.

Holy Pigeons ??

Sarah, have you ever been to Rome, Italy?

On the majority of Rome's cathedrals and
buildings, you will see hundreds of pigeons.

What that means, I have no idea, but perhaps
pigeons are attracted to beautiful landmarks.

Were they interfering with your wilderness
experience by making lots of noise???

Nope, never been to Italy. They were making some noise, but nothing too obnoxious. It was their crap all over the rock that was more annoying. I put my hand in it once... yuck!

It's my humble opinion that if we were able
to transform "pigeon poop" to a renewable
bio-fuel, we could all save at the pump when
visiting that awesome crag or snow-capped
mountain. Nice photo, anyway.

Yes, I knew witches and beautiful maidens
would be involved in this somewhere.

My father used to take care of passenger
pigeons. (Of course, that was before cell
phones, computers and "Transformer" movies
came along!)
