Mt. Princeton Archives:
Sunday Drive in a Vintage Cadillac
During my 24-hour visit to Buena Vista (June 9-10), a friend took me for a Sunday drive in his 1959 Cadillac. Talk about a beautiful piece of machinery!
As for what I did in Buena Vista, I ate at Pizza Works, had a nice time with friends, watched the sunset and moved my furniture from Buena Vista to Grand Junction. :)

April Is Snow Season In Colorado
My friend Dave, who lives in Buena Vista, snapped this photo a few days ago. As anyone knows who lives in the higher elevations of the mountains, April is usually a very snowy month. Look at all that wonderful snow in that picture! :)

Beautiful Spring Photo At F Street Bridge In Salida
My friend Gayle, who lives on the Front Range, submitted her photo taken during the spring. If you are acquinted with Salida, then you probably know this was taken from the F Street Bridge. Mount Princeton stands afar with the Arkansas River flowing in the foreground. Such a beautiful picture!
I encourage you to visit Gayle's blog, coloradoreflections.blogspot.com, where she shares a little bit of everything, including her progress on her novel that takes places during the late 1800s in Chaffee County. She plans to have it finished and published by the end of 2013.

The Sunset On November 5, 2012
I am visiting Buena Vista for the day, and the sunset over the mountains was pretty. Look at those pink clouds over Mount Princeton!
I'm currently typing this at the town library and using their wi-fi. Hi everyone! :)

Beautiful Sunset Over Mount Princeton
Last night I received a picture message from a friend who lives in Buena Vista. Check out the beautiful sunset over Mount Princeton! :)
If you do not already know, I moved to Fruita, Colorado in western Colorado last month. On the hiking and photography front, I have been very busy, and you can enjoy many of my photos through my Grand Junction index page.

Mount Princeton and Sheep Mountain
I snapped this photo a few days ago, as I drove west on Chaffee County Road 306. Mount Princeton is on the left, and Sheep Mountain is on the right.
I have news to share: I moved to Fruita, Colorado. That's a small town near Grand Junction in western Colorado. My time in Buena Vista is over. As one friend said yesterday, "It's been a great run!" Indeed, it has.
This website will remain to exist well into the future, and I have no plans to shut it down. However, things obviously will be different. Only if a friend snaps of a photo of Mount Princeton and he or she allows me to use it, will I update this page.

Another Beautiful Colorado Day
This morning I was driving west and into the mountains to photograph fall foliage when I stopped to capture this picture of Mount Princeton. I wonder if the people who live in those houses visit this website now and then. :)
By the way, do check out my Colorado fall colors images. We are not near the peak of the autumn colors season, but plenty of leaves are changing to make it interesting. My favorite video is this one.

Standing On The Summit Of Mt. Harvard
On Friday, I hiked to the summit of Mount Harvard and this was the glorious view to the south. That's Bear Lake and the Horn Fork Basin in the foregorund. Out yonder, the snowy peak on the left is Mount Princeton. The largest peak (also with snow) right of center is Mount Yale. Then there is a slew of other mountains that comprise of the Sawatch Range. So pretty!

The Fall Season Has Arrived To Colorado
Above is a photo of Mount Princeton -- with snow at the highest section and beautiful fall foliage in lower slopes. I trust you're seeing all of my fall foliage photo updates on my Facebook page, but if not, check out my fall photos near Battle Mountain from yesterday.

Great View Of This Large Mountain
A Saturday morning photo of Mt. Princeton as I was driving home. Today, I made my third outing in which I photographed autumn colors in the mountains. It is still early in the season, but a few trees are showing pretty colors. You can see my photos here.

Beautiful Colorado Morning
A photo of Mount Princeton this morning, approximately three miles west of the center of Buena Vista, Colorado.
I was out there to make a modest welcome video for my new counseling practice. The website is far from complete, and I have not formally launched and/or annouced it yet, but you can see what I have up at www.cairncounseling.net.

The Last Day of August
Here's a morning photo of Mt. Princeton from Chaffee County Road 328. Not bad!

Colorado Scenery Photo By Chelsea In Kansas
My desktop computer died two weeks ago, and I have been unable to update this website until now. Also, I want to say that I almost moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. In fact, there's still a good chance that I will no longer be living in Chaffee County by the time 2012 is over. There are no guarantees though.
Anyway, the photo above was taken by my friend Chelsea, a Kansas resident who frequently visits our part of Colorado. She snapped this photo in September 2011 (last year), and I love the horses and the fall colors. Beautiful!

An Evening In Buena Vista, Colorado
Yesterday evening I visited friends who grilled steaks in their backyard. I made a video that shows the scenery and that's their 1991 Cadillac hearse out there. Probably the highlight was listening to music on their reel to reel player. Good times! :)

Aerial Photo of Mount Princeton
Here's a great aerial photo of Mount Princeton. Mark Shaw of Buena Vista was riding in an airplane and snapped this beautiful shot of the mountain.

Not a Shabby Mountain
As I snapped today's picture as I drove on Chaffee County Road 321, I said to myself, "That's not a shabby mountain."

Hiking Sheep Mountain
Above was our best view of Mount Princeton as we hiked Sheep Mountain (11,933') near Cottonwood Lake. That was a rough mountain!
