Rose Garden in Fall

Chicago Peace rose of brilliant pink

I went in search of a good sunrise this morning, but ended up at Littleton’s War Memorial Rose Garden.  Yes, we are nearly at the end of October but some of the roses are still going strong.  They were covered with chilly dew drops and seemed to be frozen in time.  I could have spent hours there…
This variety was called “Chicago Peace”

Curious Critter

Curious Big Horn Sheep looking directly at me.

This curious critter wanted to chat!  She was making her way along the river at Waterton Canyon this afternoon.  Big Horn Sheep live up in the canyon so it’s fairly easy to see them while hiking in the area.

Double Trouble

Arrowhead Golf Course with two golfers hitting out of the sand traps

I love the description used for Arrowhead Golf Course it goes “300 million years in the making!”  Well you can see, it was worth the wait!

It wasn’t until I processed this image that I noticed what the golfers were doing.  They are both hitting out of the sand traps! Love it, as that’s where I am frequently when I play golf.  Of course with a setting like this, who cares?

Fall Reflections

Clouds reflecting in a pond with Rocky Mountains behind fall leaves

Today the mountains received the first significant snow of the season.  Down here in Denver we had a cloudy day with some rain.  The reflections of the fall colors are so delightful right now.  I want to freeze this moment in time.

Right-side-up or not

Colorful rocks and autumn trees at Arrowhead Golf Cource

Looking at this i mage it’s hard to figure out which way is straight. The rocks tilt the trees are crooked, thankfully are few grow straight! There are the red rocks to the Dakota Hogback as it goes through Arrowhead Gold Course.
