This weekend we went to Mesa Verde National Park near our new cabin for the winter in southern Colorado. It was a day that threatened rain but never delivered, instead providing great clouds for most my photos and allowing it to be cool (though humid) on our 2 hour hike. There are still tons of wild flowers in bloom in Colorado even though the nights are getting colder. It’s still summer technically but compared to Moab and the rest of southern Utah, Colorado is already deep in fall. It hasn’t been over 70 degrees during the day since we moved here on the 11th and some leaves are already turning yellow. There will be tons of great fall leaves photos once the aspens are in full effect.
Photo of the Day: Mesa VerdePosted on September 18, 2013
I have been buried deep in the grains of photography since I was a teenager, enthralled by nature and the details of life, desolated places, abandoned buildings and strange creatures. I started to travel in 2005, more and more until I was doing it full time, starting with a two week trip to Argentina that inspired me to move there for a year. From 2009 to 2018, 9 years, we traveled the U.S in an RV, working on our computers during the week and seeing everything we could on the weekends.
