It’s become a tradition that we go over to Garden of the Gods during our little trip to Colorado Springs for Christmas. This year, we got snow on Christmas day and continued to get a little bit more for the next few days. This meant there must be another frosted paradise amongst the red rocks. […]
As we wondered back down along the stream, the sun broke through the clouds and started streaming through the trees and we came upon this scene. It really reminded me of a scene from Lord of the Rings or Zelda. I imagine there are some little fairies living in the little grass island and they […]
Looking back towards Kenosha Pass from the road up to the Ben Tyler Trail, we got this view. Beautiful aspens and the mountains in the background getting a snow shower. It was such a beautiful valley with a mixture of all the fall colors. Those clouds definately made it difficult to get a good […]
The colors here in Colorado are coming to an end. But even in the dimming of the colors, there are still some beautiful scenes about. This was another shot from our walk down the Cherry Creek Trail.
The fall colors in the mountains are all but gone, so we look to the many places near home on the front range for the last bursts of color. We went for a walk over at 17 Mile Ranch all along the Cherry Creek Trail where the colors wer still in full effect. We […]
The walk along Ben Tyler Trail follows a stream, so what do we photographers do? We get out our tripods and shoot some photos! This shot was a second long exposure giving a nice smooth look in the stream. It was a perfect day to shoot waterfalls with the sun behind the clouds and even […]
My Dad and I took a day to go enjoy the fall colors and ended up on the South Ben Tyler Trail near Kenosha Pass here in Colorado. When we got there, it was overcast and most of the colors were a bit mute. As luck would have it though, on our way back to […]
Our second hike while in Bluff took us to Cold Springs Cave. Within the large cave, lies the remains of a large kiva. This was an easy walk too once you found the right way to go. Luckily we had our master guide (my Dad) who knew his way around these parts quite well. In […]
On our way back down from the Monarch Cave Dwelling, the view down the canyon was stunning. The striped walls and monolithoc rock faces come together for a perfect photo opportunity. The contrast of the walls made the black and white really stand out.
The first hike we set out for on our trip to Bluff was to Monarch Cave. Monarch Cave is a beautiful Anasazi (sometimes called Ancient Pueblo or Ancestral Pueblo) cliff dwelling tucked high into an alcove above a shady desert pool of water. Several interesting pictographs and petroglyphs line the nearby cliff walls. It’s an […]
