1964 Buick Special For Sale

1964 Buick Special

I spotted this 1964 Buick Special in Johnson Village that is for sale. It has a nice view of Mount Princeton, doesn't it? If that telephone wasn't there and the car was angled differently, this would probably be a nice picture. :)

Mountain Scenery at Cottonwood Pass

Cottonwood Pass Mountain Scene

On Sunday evening, my friend Noelle and I visited Cottonwood Pass and hiked to a patch of unmelted snow on the divide. Aside from the jubilation of seeing snow in August, the mountain scenery wasn't too shabby either!

Mount Yale, Piece of Garbage Mountain and Turner Peak are all in view. Mount Princeton is also in the distance on the right.

Noelle Kisses The Mountain

Noelle Romano

The one and only Noelle Romano from Chicago is visiting Buena Vista. She sent me this photo yesterday of her trying to kiss Mount Princeton. That girl loves this mountain even more than I do! :)

On a side note, we played in snow near Cottonwood Pass and also visited Granite.

The View From Piece of Garbage Mountain

Turner Peak, CO

Yesterday afternoon I hiked to Piece of Garbage Mountain, a lousy Sawatch Range 12er east of Cottonwood Pass. This was one of the spectacular views at the summit. Turner Peak is the tall peak in front, and Mount Princeton is in the distance on the right.

Pink Clouds Way Above Mount Princeton

I've been walking around the rodeo grounds many evenings. This shot was taken last night. Love those pink clouds above Mount Princeton. :)

A Rocky Mountain Sunset

Rocky Mountain Sunset

Last night's sunset was so pretty. I was walking around the rodeo grounds (southwest of Buena Vista) when I snapped this picture with my iPhone.

Happy Monday! It's another shot of Mount Princeton from Chaffee County Road 339. I really like this scenic spot, southwest of Buena Vista.

My Adopt A Highway Sign

Colorado Adopt a Highway Sign

My new adopt a highway sign has been posted at milemarkers 212 and 214 on Highway 24. This covers the section that goes through Johnson Village. As you can see, my workers will have an amazing view of Mount Princeton as they pick up trash. :)

Good Morning From Buena Vista, Colorado

Buena Vista, CO

I went on a short hike on the Whipple Trail in Buena Vista. It's a pretty morning, as you can see. :)

Driving Toward Cottonwood Pass

Mount Princeton, CO

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

Mount Sherman, CO

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! :)

Mount Princeton - Blue Sky and Green Grass

Mount Princeton, CO

While driving from Buena Vista to Salida this morning, I snapped this photo of Mount Princeton.

Ed, Patrice and Steve

Ed and Patrice

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!

-Steve (July 20, 2014)

Austin Wylie

Austin Wylie

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. :)

Monsoon Season

Monsoon Season

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.
