The Kilby Family Visits Colorado

Kilby Family Vacation in Colorado

Yesterday was a special day. The one and only Kansas Kelly (whom I got in a fight with ten years ago, ha ha) and her family are vacationing in Colorado, and on Sunday, they stopped by Buena Vista to buy me lunch and relax at the Mount Princeton Hot Springs. These are good people. Awww man, there's so much I could say about them. Today's Mount Princeton photo is all about the people in the photo. The actual summit of the mountain is faded on the left.

Mount Princeton - March 14, 2015

Mount Princeton, CO

It's a sunny and warm day, and one gets the sense that spring is in the air. I won't get my hopes up too soon, as it's only mid-March, but I'll take days like this. Here's a morning photo from Chaffee County Road 326.

Gazing at Mount Princeton From St. Elmo

St. Elmo, Colorado

Yes, you can see the summit of Mount Princeton from many open places in St. Elmo, the ghost town in Chalk Creek Canyon. On yesterday's visit, I photographed this snowy scene. Our beloved 14er is the second pointed peak among the two in the distant right.

My Bicycle and the Mount Princeton Sign

Bicycle in Buena Vista, Colorado

I biked around Buena Vista today. At one point, I went south and got a shot of my bicycle by the Mount Princeton sign. Do you like this photo? :)

In other news, I have a Denver book signing planned on Tuesday night, February 24. It'll be at Johnny's New York Pizza in Lakewood. You can read all details on this Facebook event page.

"Under a Triumphant Sky" - My Book

This morning I made a video where I talk about my first book, Under a Triumphant Sky. This is a memoir about my first bike across America trip in 2008. You can buy a print copy or Kindle version on Amazon: www.amazon.com/Under-Triumphant-Sky-Across-America/dp/0692302891.

As you can see, Mount Princeton is in the background. :)

The Start of 2015 in Buena Vista, Colorado

Buena Vista, Colorado

I snapped this picture on January 2, as the mountains were covered in clouds for much of New Year's Day. Here's a shot as I stood on East Main Street. Mount Princeton looks massive with Sheep Mountain on the right. I've posted this image on the BV Traffic Light page too. :)
