Mount Princeton - December 9, 2017
I spent parts of the weekend in Pueblo, Westcliffe, and then Buena Vista. Of course, I had to snap of picture of our beloved mountain, Mount Princeton. I also made a video documenting how wonderfully peaceful and quiet it was; there was so little noise pollution. Watch it here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=9QD33VwH114.

Photo by Ellen in Buena Vista
Winter has arrived in the mountains of Colorado, and Ellen in Buena Vista posted this photo a few days ago. I miss Chaffee County so much. It is so depressing to be living in Greeley. :(

Bill Rogan's Drive Through The County
My friend Bill Rogan was driving through Chaffee County and when he came upon this view of Mount Princeton, he sent me this picture. I really miss the mountains. Right now I'm stuck in Greeley, which, let's face it, is pretty much western Nebraska. :(

AJ and Alissa's Hike To The Summit

Biking Around Buena Vista
I realize traffic to this website has gone way down since I moved away from Buena Vista. Still, the spirit lives on and I update this page when I can. This weekend I've been visiting and I putzed around on my bicycle on Saturday. Here's a nice shot of Mount Princeton it the background. :)
I also made a YouTube video from this very spot. Check it out. -Steve (August 6, 2017)

Photo by David Schiefelbein
I may not be living in Buena Vista, but the spirit of this web page will never die. Here's a morning photo by David Schiefelbein with his coffee thermos in front. I don't know his exact location, but he is a bunch of miles north of Buena Vista and east of the Arkansas River. Pretty shot!

The View From Custer County
Today I spoke about biking across America at the public library in Westcliffe, Colorado. This is in Custer County, which is roughly southeast of Salida. I was pleased to see Mount Princeton and the Sawatch Range way in the distance. :)

Another Mt. Princeton Photo From Last Week
Here's one more shot of Mount Princeton from last week's visit to Buena Vista. I was on Gregg Drive, headed west toward Chaffee County Road 321. It's a nice view for sure. :)

Mount Princeton, Colorado - October 2016
I visited Buena Vista for two days last week. Here's a nice shot of Mount Princeton from Chaffee County Road 306 at the drive-in movie theater.
Are you on Facebook? I run the page for the Buena Vista, CO traffic light and I updated the page with a nice fall colors shot.

Beautiful Summer Days in Buena Vista, Colorado
Actually I snapped this photo a few weeks ago when I spent a weekend in Buena Vista. That mountain never disappoints us, does it? :)
In other news, yesterday I hiked West Spanish Peak, the taller mountain among the Spanish Peaks. My life in Southeast Colorado has been going pretty well, and I'll always miss the wonderful 8.5 years I spent in Chaffee County. Will I ever be back? Who knows? What I do know is I loved photographing Mount Princeton on a regular basis and long to do it again.

Back Visiting Buena Vista. It's Good To See Her
I'm back in Buena Vista! Okay, it's only temporary. Sorry. I'l be here for 36 hours.
Over the next four days, I'm on a four day book tour where I do presentations about biking across America and sell my book at Colorado libraries. I just spoke in Louisville. On Monday, I'll be at the Bailey library, then on Tuesday I'll be in Loveland and Littleton.

It's my final morning in Buena Vista, Colorado before heading home. Here's a nice shot of Mount Princeton from Johnson Village. I also made a not too shabby video for it! :)

The Fall Season In Colorado
This is a photo taken by Tom Hammon at the Trail West Conference Center in Buena Vista two days ago. It's an interesting view of Mount Princeton. (Special thanks to Skip Ecke for displaying this picture on Facebook!)
In other news, I snapped many pictures of the Spanish Peaks around La Veta in Huerfano County yesterday. :)

Mount Princeton Looks Like A Massive Mountain
A nice view of the mountain from the junction of Chaffee County Roads 306 and 361. Sadly, I am back in Trinidad after a weekend visit to Buena Vista. Did you see my update on the traffic light Facebook page? :)

Beautiful Mug Shot
I'm visiting Buena Vista this weekend. Here's a nice mug shot of the mountain. :)

An August Storm In The Mountains
In late August, Dave Schiefelbein sent me this beautiful photo of a storm over Mount Princeton. Finally, after obtaining internet access at my new place in Trinidad, I can post it. Great shot!

"Headed To Crested Butte" - Photo by Shana Black
My friend Shana Black was in the passenger seat as she and a friend traveled west on Chaffee County Road 306. They were headed over Cottonwood Pass to the town of Crested Butte. It's funny -- I have a few friends who will send me a picture message whenever they're in Buena Vista. It's an honor they think of me! :)
