Along the Unaweep/Tabeguache Scenic ByWay, you’ll find Driggs Mansion which was built in 1914 by a wealthy New Yorker – some say for his beloved wife, others say he built it as a hunting lodge. The walls were cut from sandstone from the surrounding canyons.
This year, May 5th turned out to be the day the Moon would make it closest pass to the Earth to give us another Super Moon, so we decided to find somewhere nice to view the moon this year. The clouds kept threatining to cover the show, but we were luckly enough to have a […]
There is a fire up in Reynolds Park that blanketed the front range in smoke this evening (3/26/12) and driving home, the sunset was one of the most amazing sights to see. The sun was bright red and everything else is covered in smoke. As I stood there and watched, the sun dipped behind the […]
Another in my Weathered Trees Series, this one is from Roxborough State Park. I decided to go for the B&W on this one and I think it turned out great even though one of the big draws to Roxborough is the red rocks and blue sky. The contrast and sky this day turned out o […]
It’s not quite spring yet but it sure feels like it! We went for a walk over at one of my favorite places, Roxborough State Park to soak up the sun and enjoy the views. There was still quite a bit of snow on the trails, so they were a little muddy, but it was […]

Many people drive this route and probably never realize how cool the bridge they just drove over really is. If you head into the park, there is an overlook that looks back to the canyon and […]
I’ve been planning on making a trip over to Star K Ranch / Morrison Nature Center ever since the trees started changing. I finally had the chance when my son’s school was going on a field trip there! Nothing is better than spending time with your son on a beautiful Colorado morning and looking at […]
I really love this shot. I’m not sure what it is I like so much though. I don’t know if it is strong contrast of the wood against the green and blast of colorful flowers, or the composition of the shot. I wish that blurry branch wasn’t there on the left…Oh well, need to learn to take […]
The typical shot that shows off Colorado’s beauty. A meadow, filled with wild flowers and rocks and mountains in the background. It was so beautiful up at Buttler Gultch, and this just show a glimpse of that.
To finish our trip to see the fall colors, we headed out of Ward and went up into Brainard Lake for a quick look. The road up to the lake was beautiful with bright yellow aspens on either side of the road backlit and glowing with the sun shining down. Up at the lake, there […]
