Mt. Princeton Archives:
Driving Toward Cottonwood Pass
A morning shot as I drove west on Chaffee County Road 306 to Cottonwood Pass. I met with Mike and Lesa to make this video for my fantasy football league. :)

Hike To Mount Sherman
On Wednesday, Bill Rogan and I hiked Mount Sherman, a 14er in the Mosquito Range. Once we got high enough to see the Sawatch Range, I kept searching for our beloved Mount Princeton. Finally, I saw her! :)

Ed, Patrice and Steve
My friends Ed and Patrice were in town today. We had lunch at El Paraiso and then went to the Rodeo Grounds to get a picture of us with Mount Princeton. Great shot!

Today's Mount Princeton photo was taken on a hill overlooking Leadville. That's my friend Austin Wylie looking out at the grand scenery. Mount Princeton is below the red arrow with the Sawatch Range going across the image. So pretty!
This visit was all part of me hanging out with the Wylie family of Oklahoma. Each year they visit Colorado and have a picnic at this spot. I even made a video of the picnic festivies. :)

Yesterday after visiting the Mt. Sherman Trailhead, we were coming down Trout Creek Pass when I snapped this photo. We've had many cloudy and semi-rainy days lately. I think this is what we call the monsoon season in Colorado.

My Friend, John Wylie
My friend John Wylie of Oklahoma City is visiting Buena Vista this week. John's a good guy -- he's encouraged me with many things in my life.
Today John biked all over; he even visited me at my house. Yes, it was raining way out there in front of Mount Princeton. :)

Mount Princeton and Mount Yale
On a drive from Salida to Buena Vista, I pulled over on Highway 285 for this shot of Mount Princeton. Neighboring Mount Yale is on the right.

Mount Princeton - July 8, 2014
I went for a walk at the Chaffee County Rodeo Grounds (outside of Buena Vista) and snapped this pretty picture. The lush green grass makes this photo a winner! :)

The Sawatch Range
I snapped this photo two days ago while on the summit of Mount Shavano, facing north. Mount Princeton is below the arrow on the right. Also included is peak after peak in the Sawatch Range. :)

Whale Hill Near Poncha Pass
My friend Gayle Gresham was exploring the high country around Poncha Pass, and she submitted this photo from a place named Whale Hill. It's a wonderful view of the Sawatch Range and Arkansas River Valley, isn't it? Mount Princeton is the peak right of center (note the Chalk Cliffs to its right), and Mount Shavano is the pointed and tallest peak on the left. So beautiful!

From Neighboring Peak 13078'
This morning my friend Mike and I hiked Peak 13078', a 13er that's accessed from the Poplar Gulch Trail in St. Elmo. We had a this spectacular view of Mount Princeton -- this is the vantage point about five miles to the west of the mountain. Our beloved peak is tallest one in the back.

The Collegiate Peaks Overlook
This morning I sat at the Collegiate Peaks Overlook for a while. I am praying hard about starting a publishing company based in Chaffee County. (Obtaining the financial resources is a major obstacle.) Anyway, I snapped this photo of Mount Princeton with my iPhone. I can't quite describe why, but I really like this image.

The sunset over Mount Princeton wasn't too shabby last night. :)

So Many Mountain Views From Mount Democrat
Yesterday I hiked Mount Democrat with Mike Vernon, and faithful to Mount Princeton, here's an image that includes our beloved mountain. It's small, but it could be seen from the summit. :)

The Mountain Looks Big Today
Mount Princeton looked big today. I snapped this picture as I was driving south on Highway 24 into Buena Vista. So pretty! :)

Mount Antero and Mount Princeton - Two Lofty 14ers
This morning I snapped this picture from my car at the entrance to the Buena Vista Sanitation District. See? Even the garbage and sewer water systems in Chaffee County have a grand view of the mountains! That's Mount Antero (left) and Mount Princeton (right).

Gorgeous Colorado Mountain Scene
A pretty mountain scene from the edge of Chaffee County Road 339. This is about four miles due west of Buena Vista, Colorado. So gorgeous! I also made a video showing 180+ degrees of the scenery.
