Rocky Mountain Winter

Got some good hiking in this morning, now working on staying ahead of the curve by getting some more winter pictures done. Have to say, these images of our Mount Elbert winter hike in January of 2016 have to be some of the most memorable shots I have ever taken. It was a beautiful morning … Continue reading Rocky Mountain Winter

Solstice 2016

The new year holiday is meaningless to me, based on nothing but someone's idea of a chronological date indicating an arbitrary division of time developed centuries ago.

I was glad to be able to participate, completing my sixth 14er on a beautiful Colorado day in the high country. Buddy Bill also … Continue reading Hiking Mount Massive

Been a busy week getting high... high on elevation that is 🙂 The week started last Friday with a six mile hike through the rugged hills of Section 16 in Colorado Springs with the Pikes Peak Adventures Meetup Group. The trail was great as were occasional views of Red Rock Canyon and the mountains of … Continue reading Getting High
