My Birthday Present!

Yesterday was my birthday. Its okay that you didn’t get me anything. 🙂 Jennifer arranged for the United States Air Force Thunderbirds to fly over the house. Isn’t she amazing?!?! The news said that they were here for the Air Force Academy graduation, but we know the real reason… birthday! 🙂 I’ve got some new content that…

Desert Penstemon

This is a delicate Desert Penstemon flower I found while out on the trail in the Indian Peak Wilderness in Colorado. Outside of Colorado not to many people have heard of the Indian Peak Wilderness which borders Rocky Mountain National Park to the South. It is full of amazing and remote trails just like its…

San Juan Reflection

A look at the Ice Lake in the upper Ice Lake Basin. This is one of my favorite hikes in Colorado. I love the San Juan mountains.

Fly Eagles, Fly

Congratulations to the Philadelphia Eagles on your Super Bowl LII victory! Fly Eagles, Fly! Tonight’s game was one of the best games in NFL history. Both the Eagles and the Patriots brought their best and I am thankful the Eagles came out on top. It was nice to see two teams give it their all…

Captured in Ice

I found this small rock captured in ice in the middle of Lake Helene in Rocky Mountain National Park. I can only imagine that the rock was thrown to its resting place by a visitor as the water was still in the midst of freezing. This was 30′ from the shore line so there would…

Ancient Path into the Unknown

 When Jennifer and I went to China our top priority was to see The Great Wall in its restored state as well as the ruins of this once great wonder. When we arrived on the unrestored section of the Wall known as Jiankou we were greeted with this view. An uncertain ancient path into the…

Blustery Winter

For many in the United States today is a blustery winter day, so I thought this was an appropriate photo. Here in Colorado it has been a fairly mild winter so far. The ski resorts have snow, but the base isn’t what it normally is. I for one hope the cold weather sticks around and that…

Taking a Break

No photo today 🙁 I am going to be taking the month of November off from the blog. November is a busy month for me at work and I am having trouble keeping up with the blog so I have decided to take a break. I hope you all understand. I will be turning on…

Spookyween!

Happy Halloween everyone! Also known as Spookyween in our home… as of yesterday… it’s the next big thing! This jack-o-latern was carved by Jennifer. We really like to carve pumpkins and you can check out and vote on the best from this year on our Facebook pages. I hope you all get lots of treats…

Let Freedom Ring

I took this image last month before watching the 4th of July fireworks at Memorial Park in Colorado Springs. I was trying to capture the gorgeous Colorado sunset, but this little girl was having way too much fun splashing around and throwing mud into the lake to allow me a clear shot. In the back…

A Grand View at Grand Canyon National Park

This grand view is the Trail View Point along the South Rim Trail inside Grand Canyon National Park. Out of all the spectacular viewpoints along the South Rim, I think this is my favorite. The rock that Jennifer is perched on juts out above the canyon like few other places along the Rim. One of…

Vibrant Indian Paintbrush

It is finally summer in Colorado…well, maybe. Earlier this week we had a cold snap and it was back down into the 40’s we go. Seriously, I was wearing a sweater in late June. Global warming?… I’m just asking. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think pollution is a good thing. Alas, it is summer…
