Getting to and from Silver basin is not without difficulty. Decisions such as going over the suspect looking bridge or through the river must be made….

Follow The Leader

Suburbans are not typically the best 4 wheelers, but our little caravan did just fine.

Storm Clouds

Storm clouds surrounded Silver Basin, but they could not obscure the distant peaks.

Glacier Milk

In some places, water this color is called Glacier Milk. What ever you call it, the flowers seem to like it!

This was taken on a trip to Silver Basin (Above Ouray) last Saturday. We have a foreign exchange student from Japan living with us for a month, and we are doing a tour of some of the places near Delta. I will be posting more shots from the Silver Basin trip as well as some of the other trips we take, and hope you enjoy the tour.

Looking West

There are nights I walk outside at sunset, and simply say "wow".

Rotating Stock

Sometimes moving the older stock to the front does not help it move faster.....

Lost Creek

I was able to do some backpacking in Lost Creek this month, and was treated to a very special sunset.

Waiting Is Good

There is a good reason that the game did not start until 6:30pm!

A Very Grand Mesa

Grand Mesa lived up to it's name on this warm summer evening.

Night Vision

July brought the Christian Night Vision concert to Olathe again this year, and even though a strong gust of wind shut down the main stage, a smaller stage was setup within a hour, and the event continued with a number of main stream Christian artists including "Mercy Me". It seems that God even approved buy sending a good backdrop!

A stream side picnic is a good way to spend a summer afternoon in the mountains of Colorado.

Cascade Falls

I wonder how many "Cascade Falls" there are in Colorado. This one down at the edge of town in Ouray is worth the 5 min walk.

Window Washing

Sometimes having a car between you and the parade is a good idea!

All Wet

Life kind of got in the way of my postings, but I am back at it, picking up back on the 4th of July in Ouray. The parade seems to get to be more of a water fight each year, and this year was not exception. This guy seems somewhat out gunned!

The North Side of Town

There are a series of small mesas around Delta, and they can give you a different perspective of town.

Yet Another Sunset

Sunsets in Delta are routinely spectacular!

Waiting For The Cameraman

My wife decided to go with me on a photo drive one evening, and she decided not to venture down to the river bank with me, so I shot to speak :)

The waters are not quite still as the sun sinks in the west.

Happy 4th of July

We spent the day down in Ouray for a good old fashion 4th of July, complete with parade, fighter jet fly over, games, a cookout, and fireworks. There is nothing like the rumble of fireworks as they roll down the canyon. Zoom in for details in this shot!

It seems the most of the summer, there is some vendor setup in the parking lot of the Delta Super, and this summer evening is no exception. Zoom in for detail.

Growing up I recall playing in an old barn of this sort that I am not sure we were supposed to be in. It has been a few years.

Complex Rules

I was having a hard time following the rules of my girls softball team until I realized that we were following the complex rules. Perhaps next year they will play at a park with simple rules, and our dog can play short stop.......

Today is theme day, and the theme is "NO Signs". Check out others here:
