Picture Day

Today was picture day for the girls softball league, and my youngest two daughters seemed to enjoy it. The weather could not have been more perfect.

Looking Back Toward Delta

I never tire of view of Dominguez Canyon as it pushes out to the foot of Grand Mesa. I hope you have enjoyed the trip.

Still Fighting

If you look to the top of this old warrior, you will see that it still puts up the good fight.

Old & New

New and old life coexist in this very special place.

Play Ground

I think God is a better playground builder than man is any day. For what it's worth, Colleen (in the orange) made it up the pitch! You must zoom in for details.

Road Closed

The road to the Cactus Park overlook of Dominguez Canyon is rough enough this year with out these guys throwing their weight around! Zoom in an take a look at the young ones in the back who are learning to be road blocks.

Peaks On The Horizon

Back home in Delta, the peaks are a ways away, but not so far that you can't visit them often.

These peaks are playing that age old game of Peak-A-Boo with the clouds.

Lonesome Ranch

They call it Bristlecone View, but some would describe this place in South Park as Lonesome Ranch.

Fresh Snow

The peaks in South Park glisten under a fresh coat of spring snow.

Sheep Time

I stopped at a rest area in Glenwood Canyon, and all the bicycle riders were stopped watching the sheep get watered in the canyon. The variety of landscapes on this trip is very interesting. This shot was taken less than 2 hours after the previous two pictures.

Looking West from the summit of Loveland Pass, you can see the mountains above the Arapaho Basin ski area. As far as I know, it is the only one still open, and if the weather holds, it may stay open close to July 4th.

Loveland Pass

I just got back from a two night trip back to the Denver area, and of course I had the cameras with me. Over the next few days, I will give you an idea of what it is like between here and there. This shot was taken on the top of Loveland Pass. If you look closely you can see snowboarders carrying their boards up to the summit for a hard earned run. The up side, is that there are no lift ticket fees....or lifts.....

Storm Clouds

The sun sets in Delta as another storm settles in.

Back To The Hill

On May 20th of last year, I posted this same hill. Each year the road is closed, and the Seniors get to paint it. Last year, our son Tim put his mark on the world, and it was not long after that he survived a head on crash. God was truly watching over him that day, and I know it was for a reason. My prayer is that God will continue to watch over these seniors that are attempting to leave their marks as well.

Breakfast in China

I was looking for something different for breakfast this morning, and was unsuccessful. On the way, we saw this closed Chinese restaurant, and it got me thinking. So what do they eat for breakfast in China......I have no idea since I have never found a Chinese restaurant that is open for breakfast......

Kneaded Touch

If you got the bread and you are feeling a bit doughy, this may be the place for you.

Monday, May 12, 2008


Some fun house mirrors make you look fat, others thin, this one just makes you look a bit goofy around the edges.....or perhaps it is just a normal reflection.......

Happy Mothers Day!

Last weekend was out Church's Mother Daughter Banquet. All the women and girls had a nice sit down dinner, served buy the guys in the church. The church gym was decorated up as nice as a gym can be, and the event was enjoyed by all.

Today in the US, it is Mother's Day. Regardless of where you are, take the time to give you Mom a big hug today, you never know how many more chances you will have to do that! I miss you Mom.

You may recall an earlier post called "Tail Fins" that I posted on 9/26/06, or the series of hood ornaments I posted in 2007. Those shots came from the collection of one man, and in August, he he putting his entire collection up for auction. When he let me in the yard to photograph the hood ornaments, his passion for his collection was very evident. I suspect it will be a hard day for him.

Out-Of-Sink Erator

When you do a DP site, you almost always have a camera with you, and last weekend was no exception. I was helping serve at the annual Mother Daughter banquet our church puts on, and had my camera in the kitchen. Now, if you look over the 551 shots I have posted prior to this one, you will notice that this photograph does not really live up to the standards I have set for myself. That is because my camera was apparently hijacked sometime during the evening........

Well it only seems fair that I post the best of their work. Click on the image to see the detail of the wash cloth threads :)

I decided against the interior garbage can shots! Tomorrow I will post one of my shots from the event :)

Wrong Way

It is odd how inviting this looks, but every indication says I should not enter......

Horseback Rides

I suspect it has been a few years since rides were available.......

It is the Etc. part that has me curious.......

The snow has retreated to the upper most regions of the mesa, and Delta is all abloom this spring!

Iron Man

Iron Man has come to Delta, and decided to hand out in front of the Egyptian theater. As I was taking a picture of him, the fan on the right said Oh, please please take my picture with Iron Man! He did not ask for a copy or anything, he just wanted his picture taken! Well, here you go :)

Country Roads

Green returns to the valleys, and the country roads just ask to be explored.

What to do with an old steam shovel

Park it in a field and string barbed wire I guess......

It is May first, the tulips are starting to bloom, the grass is green, and it is snowing..........
