There is nothing like a hike up to a high country Colorado alpine lake to remind me that I live in one of the most splendid places on earth! I love this photograph of Upper Forest Lake at the Continental Divide.
This spot is located in James Peak Wilderness, one of my favorite areas to hike, backpack, camp, ski, fish, and of course, take stunning photographs like this one! (more…)

Here is a full view of the magnificently frozen Zapata Falls, near Great Sand Dunes National Park in the San Luis Valley of Colorado.
I wish there were a way a photograph could do justice to how splendid this sight was. (more…)
