Beautiful shot of Waterdog Lakes, taken by our wonderful volunteer Bonnie Konopka! #mtnutopia81201 #waterdoglakes #chaffeecounty #snowshoeing #nofilter
The tall brick smokestack just west of Salida is the most visible reminder of the smelting industry that once employed thousands of workers most of whom lived nearby in Smeltertown. The Ohio-Colorado Smelting and Refining Company operated the smelter from 1902 until 1920. The company expanded, building  smokestacks ever higher to carry away noxious gases. The last remaining stack was constructed in 1917 and was the tallest at 365 feet high. #salidacolorado #smokestack #chaffeecounty #toxic #coloradoliving #coloradolife #coloradomountains #coloradolandscapes #landscape_lovers #salidamuseum #history #smelting #historic #historiclandmark #colorado #coloradogram #the_hippie_traveler

I had the opportunity to go skiing today. Originally, there was a winter storm warning for the morning, but it ended up not being not too bad. That being said, it was quite a cold day. The wind gusted up to 50 mph and the wind chill was around 0 degrees. I think this photo captures the essence of today. I like this photo because the foreground and sky are so plain, and the trees have such wonderful texture. I also like their shapes and how they are off to the side in the photo. More photos to come!

In 1860 our family established roots in Colorado, which at that time was a territory. Pictured here is Galatia and Carolyn Sprague. When they came to Colorado they arrived in covered wagons pulled by oxen. Because they could survive on native range, and didn't require hay, oxen were preferred over horses.

Another picture from snowshoeing yesterday afternoon. In this part of the forest I enjoyed the tall trees and the long shadows. My favorite part of this photo is how the light interacts with the snow on the trail.

The majesty of Colorado... Today was my first time snowshoeing. We got some snow yesterday, and I had the opportunity to learn how to snowshoe today. In the photo it doesn't look like there's much snow. As you got deeper into the forest, there was more snow. It was maybe a couple of inches deep. It was a fun experience and it was such a gorgeous day. I was glad I got to experience such beauty today.

Great day for #snowshoeing up  old #monarch pass. #salida #chaffeecounty
Today was another day of snow in central Colorado. I guess we are finally having winter now. I took this picture just before dark, so the light wasn't great and there were not many colors. Since this was the case, I thought it would be best to make the image black and white.

This photo is from when I took sunrise photos the other day. Because of the clouds and the angle of the sun, it created this uneven lighting, which was really pretty. I like how the composition of the photo turned out with the road and the mountains in the distance. The mountain on the left is Mt. Antero and the one on the right is Mt. Princeton.

Today we finally had some snow in Colorado. For me, it was a day of driving and sledding in the snow. As I was looking around today, I enjoyed seeing the outlines of the trees. Visibility was low so it brought out the shapes of the trees. What a fun winter day!

First light... An owl hoots
A horse moves in a field
Birds chirp
Cars whiz by on the road

These were the sounds that I heard this morning as I took this picture. I went back to a field that I have been to before and was lucky to get this picture as the pink light was hitting the mountains and the field.

My favorite time of the day... The mornings and evenings always make me grateful for Colorado. Tonight there was just the right balance between blue and golden clouds. Do you know a place that always takes your breath away?

A contrast of blues and greens... This is the last image that I'm posting from my star photography session a few nights ago. I think I've been so excited about these images because of how little I know about astrophotography. It's a little outside of my comfort zone for photography. I tend to do grand and vast landscapes. It's exciting trying something new like this. It's also a good reminder to me of how many different types of photography there are.

It’s been 7 days since I’ve ridden a big mountain- I miss the views and the terrain. I love my home hill...but nothing beats the mountains. ⛰: @monarchmountain -

Another shot from last night's astrophotography! I had a lot of fun with this one. I set my camera up so that it would continuously take pictures for 90 minutes and then combine it all in one picture. That is how I ended up with these star trails. I have never taken a picture for this long before. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I do!

Tonight, I got out my tripod and experimented with some astrophotography. One thing about astrophotography that is super different from all other types of photography is that one can't see what is being photographed. Obviously I could see a decent amount of stars, but only a fraction of the ones in the image. I hope you enjoy seeing this different type of photography! Stay tuned for some more pictures from tonight.

We decided to take advantage of the warm weather and went for a hike around the Ruby Mountain area. After the hike we found a dirt road and decided to follow it for a little off-road therapy. Hours later, we’re on our way home.  You couldn’t ask for a better Sunday!

February's calendar photo is a beautiful shot of Cottonwood Lake located west of Buena Vista, CO and just north of Mt. Princeton in the San Isabel National Forest. Cottonwood Lake is used by the Upper Arkansas Water Conservancy District in their plan for augmentation as it can release water that will eventually reach the Arkansas River in southeastern Colorado. .

It's been a mild winter, here in Colorado. This shot was from this afternoon. It was sunny, blue skies, and nearly 50 degrees with no wind. For me, what makes this shot work is the golden color of the field contrasting the blue sky. The picture has warmth to it. I also enjoy the sun rays coming from the right with the long shadows. Today was pleasant.

This evening was beautiful. As I looked out across the valley, the shadows caught my eye, and that's when I set up my tripod. I love the warm sunlight on the rock formations and how it contrasts with the cool colors in the town below. I also love the shadows and how they really bring out the topography of this landscape.

I'm thinking back to this day in the fall when I found this spot. It was a cool October morning. I thought this spot was really pretty with the grass, trees, and mountains in the background. I would love to head back to this spot for a sunrise. Hopefully I'll be able to get out here in the next week or two!

Tonight's sunset was beautiful! I am back in Colorado after the holidays, and this sunset was a nice welcome back. When I set up this afternoon, I wasn't too hopeful with how the clouds were. I waited for a while and not much was happening for sunset. Just when I was about to pack up for the day, being tired of the cold and the wind, the colors started going crazy. I'm glad I waited it out. I took a lot of pictures zoomed in on the mountains, but I especially like this one of the whole scene. I love how the sky changes from very warm colors to a light blue to a deep blue.

Castle Rock in Chaffee County, Colorado. Always admire this awesome scenic spot and decided to stop. 
Castle Rock in Chaffee County is a prominent rocky point with a distinct and noticable face. Typically, this peak is viewed by motorists driving on Highway 24 and 285 between Trout Creek Pass and Buena Vista.

Yesterday, the hunt for big fish kicked my ass. To ease my pain, I got up early this morning and went to a spot where I knew I would catch a whole bunch of little guys. Then she came along 😲! #firstbigfish2018 #catchandrelease #flyfishing #fishing #arkanglers #fishpondusa #simmsfishing #sageflyfish #trout #rainbow #colorado #coloradoadventures #optoutside #chaffeecounty

Our girls have taken to life in town quite well. They took us up to Soulcraft for an afternoon beer on the patio 🍺 .

January 13, 2018 • River Runners Pale Ale from Eddyline Brewing • This is an Australian Style Pale Ale so it’s a bit different than what you’d expect. The hops profile is more flowery and grassy than the usual piney taste - which makes it easier to casually drink. A nice detour from the usual pale ale.

So we built a toy for a friend of ours! 4 1/2 inch long arm on 33s!

Golden light and morning shadows... This is another photo from one of my favorite photography days from this past year. The mountains are called the Three Apostles. When I took the photos, I kept waiting for the clouds to move out of the way so I could get a clear shot of the peaks, and I did. In retrospect, I like the photos with the cloud cover just as much as I like the clear shots.

The chalk cliffs of mt. Princeton. My mom was disappointed in the cliffs of Dover after living near these. #enjoyyourpubliclands#sawatchrange#chaffeecounty
This was an image that I found on my hard drive that I had forgotten about. This is the night sky over Buena Vista, Colorado. It reminded me how little star photography I do, and how this would be a fun thing to explore more in the new year!
