Pretty Sunset Over The Mountains
Last night's sunset was had plenty of pink over the mountains. I'm disappointed with this image; it looked so much nicer in person.

Funny Lighting on Mt. Princeton
I snapped this photo yesterday while I was driving on Gregg Drive outside of Buena Vista. Maybe I should have waited until I was out and about today to photograph the mountain, but I wanted to get this update over with. :)

What a Pretty Mountain!
This was the view of Mount Princeton as a friend and I traveled west on Chaffee County Road 306 into the mountains. What a pretty mountain! :)

Driving Along And Looking At Mount Princeton
Spring is in the air. I can feel it! Believe me, there are not many people who are more pro-snow and pro-winter as I am, but I'm looking forward to spring and summer. Chaffee County is such a wonderful place to be in the summer months!
Here's a photo as I drove south on U.S. Highway 285 and headed toward Buena Vista.

Deer Grazing By The Kitchen Window
This morning, as I ate breakfast, I had this view of Mount Princeton with deer grazing. If you love deer and elk, you're bound to spot some during the winter months on the periphery of town.

Traveling Toward Westcliffe
Like this photo? This image was taken on Colorado State Highway 69 between Walsenberg and Westcliffe. The Sangre De Cristo Range is on the left, and the Sawatch Range is on the right. If you know you're mountains, Mount Princeton, Mount Yale and Mount Columbia are recognizable out there. Here are all of my mountain photos from Tuesday morning.

Good Morning, Mount Princeton!
This is my first morning back in Buena Vista. I snapped this photo of Mount Princeton from the north side of town. I didn't realize it until after I got on my computer that there were deer in the foreground.
As for my trip, my last write-up was about Capulin Volcano National Monument in New Mexico.

Late In The Day - February 25, 2014
Today I finally returned from my getaway to Southern New Mexico. I did not bike across the USA as planned, thanks to my partner with the RV bailing on me, but I at least did something nice for myself. I did many hikes, but the highlight was probably hiking Turtleback Mountain in Truth or Consequences.

Mount Antero and Mount Princeton - Buena Vista, Colorado
Finally, we're having a sunny day in Chaffee County. Here's a photo of Mount Antero and Mount Princeton with pretty snow in the foreground. Not too shabby!

Just Another Day In Paradise
Mount Princeton is covered in clouds today. So above is a photo of the mountain from yesterday in the late afternoon. That tree in the foreground gets pounded by the wind. I don't know how it survives! :)

Mount Antero and Mount Princeton
Today's photo was taken while I was stopped on Chaffee County Road 319. Mount Antero is on the left, and Mount Princeton is on the right. It's a pretty snow scene. We've gotten a lot of snow in the past few days, and this morning I made a video when it was seven degrees. :)

Beautiful Snow Scene
I snapped this photo while my car was stopped on Chaffee County Road 321. It's a beautiful snow scene, isn't it?
Yesterday I wandered around Buena Vista and came up with 19 snow images and three videos. The picture taken on West Main Street seems to be popular.

Two Degrees This Morning - Buena Vista, Colorado
Here's the snowy and cold view from my house in Buena Vista. It was two degrees. (It has since warmed to 19 degrees as I type this.) Things have become rocky with my bike across USA trip. It's a long shot, but do any of you have a motor home or RV who'd like to support me as I bike across the country? You must be reliable and have a proven record of keeping your word! Let me know.
Lastly, check out the photo from Main Street in Buena Vista from this morning. Not too shabby! :)

Coming Down Into The Arkansas River Valley
Here's that beautiful view of Mount Princeton as one takes that final descent into the Arkansas River Valley toward Johnson Village and Buena Vista. I've lived here for eight years, and no, I do not tire from gazing at the mountain.
Question: Did you see my recent video when Bill Rogan and I walked around on frozen Cottonwood Lake? It's an okay video, I suppose. Just okay. But if you miss seeing the lake, maybe you'll like it. :)

The Sunset Over Mount Princeton
This was last night's sunset over Mount Princeton. I like this image a lot. When you live in the mountains, every evening has the potential to provide you with a stunning sunset. :)

The Beautiful View From Johnson Village
Good morning from Chaffee County! I snapped this photo from Johnson Village this morning. Mount Princeton looks as large and beautiful as ever. :)

The Arkansas River in Salida
Good afternoon from Salida, Colorado! This was the view as I stood on the F Street bridge. It's a pretty view of the Arkansas River and way out there in Mount Princeton. Not too shabby! :)
