The Back Roads and Landscapes of Northern Colorado

Yesterday I had the great idea to head up to the mountains west of my Dad’s place to try to get some dramatic shots of the sunset.  It was a pretty solid idea, unfortunately the execution didn’t go so well.  We’ll get into that later.  While I ended up missing the sunset, I did still get some pretty descent pictures on the drive.  I took most of these out the window of the truck, but they’re still worth seeing…  Have a look.

Couldn't ask for a prettier day up in the hills.

We're about 3 miles west of the old man's place here. A really pretty valley.

The road to nowhere.

Just happened across these gents paragliding on a big ridge on the way up there.

It was beautiful. Unfortunately this was right before the day came to a rather inauspicious ending.

And that's how the photo shoot came to an abrupt end before it even started... Shit.

That’s all for now.  We’ll have a little video of my ill-fated trip to the mountains coming up before too long.

    Beautiful landscapes you have! Nice pictures especially the last one is not bad. A little funny. It is not easy to bury a Toyota truck as you did. When the snow touches the bottom of the car, it´s difficult to draw and drive through.
    Don´t take it so hard. This happens to me almost once a week.

    • Thanks! It is really pretty out here… Colorado is an amazing place. You’re right, it’s not too easy to get a Toyota stuck, but around here it happens pretty often too :). So do you have to drive around on dirt roads for your job??

    How else can I get into the woods. Our forest roads are very similar, sometimes worse. My company car is a good suv but … sometimes! Today I wanted to take pictures of the sunset for two photo exhibitions and i had to sludge through a large hole with a lot of water. Then I was able to expose fish in the car. My forest workers had distracted the road. It took more than an hour to clean the car.
    If you want to send me an email and I send you some pictures of the area and our nature.

Enough about me, what do you think?
