Thursday | October 25 I woke up this morning with a sinus headache. A cold front moved into Colorado and the pressure is messing with my head. Oh, there is snow on the ground. Maybe three inches. I wasn’t in the mood to do anything–including the housework that I had planned.
As I took the girls to school, looking at the gorgeous snow covering the trees, I had a brilliant idea: head to the high country to shoot the snow!
The housework can wait. It will still be there tomorrow. And I can pop a few sinus pills and ignore the headache.
First stop: Red Rocks Park in Morrison, Colorado. It’s only about 25 minutes drive from my house. It was so quiet and hardly a soul in sight.
Red Rocks in black and white.
On a whim I headed up Hwy. 285 through Turkey Creek Canyon to Conifer.
Then, I took a hard right and followed the signs towards Evergreen.
Evergreen Lake: Here at the Lake it was so peaceful and serene. Only a few dog walkers were present. The silence was broken when a guy pulled up in his car and preceded to roll down the windows and blare “Sweet Caroline”. I still can’t get that song out of my head.
Don’t you love this red barn. I thought it would make a cute holiday card.
I came to a screeching halt when I saw these deer along the mountain road in Evergreen. They just stood there watching me watch them.
I kept meandering thorough the woods to get back to the city. This was taken on Lookout Mountain above Golden, Colorado.
As I came down the mountain, back into the city, I lost my Rocky Mountain High.
This is why I live here.
