Fall Coming to an End

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.

Fall on the Front Range

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 […]

Cascades of the Forest

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 […]

The Little Red Tree

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 […]

Cold Springs Cave Kiva

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 […]

Exiting Monarch Cave

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.

Monarch Cave Dwelling

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 […]

Driggs Mansion

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.

Graffiti: Colorado Style

We were driving out of Old Colorado City in Colorado Springs and were just about to take a turn at an intersection when I saw this graffiti on the side of West Side Tattoo’s building.  I let out a big WOAH and my wonderful wife said “Do we need to stop?  You better stop.”  She […]
