Fall Colors, 1 of ???

We hiked Cataract Loop Trail, north of Silverthore, CO on Saturday and took a lot, I mean a lot, of pictures.  On Sunday, we drove Borreas Pass road, out of Breckenridge and took a lot of pictures up there too. Fall color is now at it's peak, at least around Breck, right now and it was spectacular over the weekend.  I'll put a few shot up in the next week or so.

Cataract Loop trail is a loop, about 2.5 miles around Cataract Lake, a glimpse of which you can catch here.

Waiting for Winter

Anticipating winter, maybe even an early onset of winter, here's a picture from Mueller State Park taken year before last, New Years Day, I think, when we snowshoed some of the trails there.  It was an extraordinarily beautiful day in Colorado, as you can see.

Red Rocks

Since I haven't been able to get out much this year due to shoulder replacement, I thought I'd go through my files and put up a couple of images.  Here's one from earlier this year at Red Rocks Canyon, here in the Springs.

Another Elk Picture from Rocky Mtn National Park

The big guy with part of his "harem." He was very effective and keeping them in line; he obviously is a male chauvinist, but not a pig.

As a deer that panteth. . .

I shot this guy on a photo workshop last weekend up in Rocky Mountain National Park. He was one of the bigger elk bulls I've seen and he seemed king of the 'hood. There was another bull who emerged from a tree line about a mile away from this guy. He bugled once or twice which drew my subject's attention so he turned from here and mosyed over. The second, younger bull soon took off for the other side of a road that was behind me. He wanted nothing to do with a fight.
