The Summit of Mount Princeton

Mt. Princeton Summit

John Drew Peterson of Salida hiked Mount Princeton on Friday. This man is a mountain climbing stud -- nothing stops him! When I saw his photo of the summit, I knew that it had to be today's entry. :)

A Bedroom View Of The Mountains

Buena Vista, Colorado

A friend bought a house in Buena Vista. Here's his view from a bedroom window. Look at how pretty Mount Princeton is! :)

Evening In Buena Vista, Colorado

Buena Vista, CO

The view of the mountains as the day's light comes to an end. I was standing in the parking lot of my gym, Peak Fitness, in Buena Vista.

A Colorado Cattle Ranch

Colorado Cattle Ranch

A cattle ranch near Nathrop. So pretty, isn't it? This was taken while pulled over on my drive from Salida to Buena Vista.

This Is Why I Live Here

Mount Princeton

Yes, sir. It's because of Mount Princeton and the entire Sawatch Range. :)

The View From Aspen Ridge - Chaffee County, Colorado

Mount Princeton

Mike Vernon and I went driving in the Bassam Park -- that's east of Buena Vista and south of Highway 24 & 285. Here's a pretty shot of Mount Princeton (left) and Mount Yale (right) near the area known as Aspen Ridge.

Mount Princeton - December 5, 2014

Mount Princeton, Colorado

It's a warm day in the Colorado Rocky Mountains. We're in the 50s and it's sunny -- I may force myself to go for a bike ride. :)

A Pretty Shot of Mount Princeton

Mount Princeton, CO

I was overdue to post a new picture of Mount Princeton. Here's a pretty shot (with my cell phone) from Chaffee County Road 339.

Great Sand Dunes National Park

Great Sand Dunes National Park

Yesterday I hiked to High Dune in Great Sand Dunes National Park. While on the top, I could see some of the peaks in the southern Sawatch Range. Mount Shavano and Mount Antero were clearly in view, and I could faintly see the highest slopes of Mount Princeton. Wooooo hooooo!

Wonderful Snow in Colorado

Mount Princeton, CO

I apologize for not updating this website more often. A few days ago, we had our first major snowstorm in Colorado. Here's a shot as I drive west on Chaffee County Road 306 outside of Buena Vista. :)

A Hike In The Forest


I went on a short hike in the forest today -- nothing wild. Do you see Mount Princeton beyond the trees? :)

Mount Princeton - November 5, 2014

Mount Princeton, Colorado

This morning I walking around the Chaffee County Rodeo Grounds in Buena Vista when I snapped this photo of Mount Princeton. Not a shabby view. Look at that beautiful blue sky! :)

Enjoying The Scenery

Enjoy Colorado Scenery

That's my left foot out of the car window. Oh yes, I enjoyed the mountain scenery today. :)

Highway 291 - Poncha Springs and Buena Vista

Poncha Springs, CO

I snapped this photo yesterday as I was driving away from Salida. When you hit Highway 285, turn left for Poncha Springs or turn right for Buena Vista.

This time, I made a rare deviation from the norm. Mount Princeton is not in the photo, but Mount Shavano on the far left is. I really like this view. :)

-Steve (October 30, 2014)

Chaffee County Road 326

Mount Princeton

This photo was taken yesterday on my bike ride. I did the Buena Vista / Mt. Princeton Hot Springs / Nathrop loop. Here's a shot as I rested at Chaffee County Road 326 at the Maxwell Park Schoolhouse. Nice view! :)

Horse Ranch in Chaffee County

Mount Princeton, CO

A pretty horse ranch in Chaffee County with our beloved Mount Princeton behind. So pretty. This was on today's bike ride. :)

Coming Down Into The Arkansas River Valley

Mount Princeton, CO

Here's that stunning view of Mount Princeton as one travels west on Highway 24 into Johnson Village. I also made a video of the drive. :)

Mount Princeton Got Snowed On

Mount Princeton, Colorado

Here's a photo from yesterday morning. Mount Princeton got snowed on! It was an interesting day, as I captured photos of fall colors AND snow in different parts of the range. :)
