Snowed In

Yellow House in Snow

This wonderful, historic home is one of my favorite places to shoot in the snow.  Today was no exception.  Note the solar panels to the right!  Not so old fashioned after all!

Historic Cripple Creek

Cripple Creek OverlookThis Historic Town of Cripple Creek has seen many a boom and bust.  Originally a top-producing gold-mining town it is now a popular destination for gamblers wanting to win their fortune.  I love the view from this overlook coming into town.  You can see for miles and miles.

Summertime in the High Country

Living in Colorado brings with it many special side benefits.  One is the ability to hop in the car and in a short time be above the clouds!  This photo of the Yampa Valley was taken from the top of the gondola at Steamboat.

Snow Caps

Funny, I got an email the other day from a gentleman in the UK.  He wanted to interview me on the state of real estate in ski towns.

I silently smiled and referred him to a friend of mine, Trish Giassa who actually lives and sells real estate in Crested Butte, a REAL ski town.

So many people have the impression that Denver is IN the mountains. It really isn’t.

But then I took this photo while standing on the Millennium Bridge in Riverfront Park.  I’ll be darned, it does look like Denver is in the mountains!

We have a guest

Up on Conifer mountain there is a fox family who come to visit.  They trot up on the deck and watch us as we socialize.  They won’t let us approach them, but they love to hang around.

No complaints here, I couldn’t have asked for a better pose!

Pikes Peak in Blue

In the hills above Denver, in a town called Conifer, one can see very far away on a clear day.  Of course most of our days are clear. This morning I was rewarded with low lying clouds that looked like snow.

Colorado is grand.
