Mount Princeton - Blue Sky and Green Grass

While driving from Buena Vista to Salida this morning, I snapped this photo of Mount Princeton.

Ed, Patrice and Steve

Ed and Patrice

My friends Ed and Patrice were in town today. We had lunch at El Paraiso and then went to the Rodeo Grounds to get a picture of us with Mount Princeton. Great shot!

Austin Wylie

Austin Wylie

Today's Mount Princeton photo was taken on a hill overlooking Leadville. That's my friend Austin Wylie looking out at the grand scenery. Mount Princeton is below the red arrow with the Sawatch Range going across the image. So pretty!

This visit was all part of me hanging out with the Wylie family of Oklahoma. Each year they visit Colorado and have a picnic at this spot. I even made a video of the picnic festivies. :)

Monsoon Season

Monsoon Season

Yesterday after visiting the Mt. Sherman Trailhead, we were coming down Trout Creek Pass when I snapped this photo. We've had many cloudy and semi-rainy days lately. I think this is what we call the monsoon season in Colorado.

My Friend, John Wylie

John Wylie

My friend John Wylie of Oklahoma City is visiting Buena Vista this week. John's a good guy -- he's encouraged me with many things in my life.

Today John biked all over; he even visited me at my house. Yes, it was raining way out there in front of Mount Princeton. :)

Mount Princeton and Mount Yale

On a drive from Salida to Buena Vista, I pulled over on Highway 285 for this shot of Mount Princeton. Neighboring Mount Yale is on the right.

Mount Princeton - July 8, 2014

Mount Princeton, CO

I went for a walk at the Chaffee County Rodeo Grounds (outside of Buena Vista) and snapped this pretty picture. The lush green grass makes this photo a winner! :)

The Sawatch Range

Sawatch Range, CO

I snapped this photo two days ago while on the summit of Mount Shavano, facing north. Mount Princeton is below the arrow on the right. Also included is peak after peak in the Sawatch Range. :)

Whale Hill Near Poncha Pass

Whale Hill

My friend Gayle Gresham was exploring the high country around Poncha Pass, and she submitted this photo from a place named Whale Hill. It's a wonderful view of the Sawatch Range and Arkansas River Valley, isn't it? Mount Princeton is the peak right of center (note the Chalk Cliffs to its right), and Mount Shavano is the pointed and tallest peak on the left. So beautiful!

From Neighboring Peak 13078'

Mount Princeton, Colorado

This morning my friend Mike and I hiked Peak 13078', a 13er that's accessed from the Poplar Gulch Trail in St. Elmo. We had a this spectacular view of Mount Princeton -- this is the vantage point about five miles to the west of the mountain. Our beloved peak is tallest one in the back.

The Collegiate Peaks Overlook

Collegiate Peaks Overlook

This morning I sat at the Collegiate Peaks Overlook for a while. I am praying hard about starting a publishing company based in Chaffee County. (Obtaining the financial resources is a major obstacle.) Anyway, I snapped this photo of Mount Princeton with my iPhone. I can't quite describe why, but I really like this image.

So Many Mountain Views From Mount Democrat

Mt. Democrat CO

Yesterday I hiked Mount Democrat with Mike Vernon, and faithful to Mount Princeton, here's an image that includes our beloved mountain. It's small, but it could be seen from the summit. :)

First Street in Salida, Colorado

First Street in Salida, CO

I'm in Salida today. Here's a shot of Mount Princeton from First Street, facing north.

In other news, yesterday I made a video from an overlook on Chaffee County Road 321. The Mount Princeton Hot Springs, Mount Antero and Mount Princeton are all included.

The Mountain Looks Big Today

Mount Princeton looked big today. I snapped this picture as I was driving south on Highway 24 into Buena Vista. So pretty! :)

Mount Antero and Mount Princeton - Two Lofty 14ers

Mount Antero and Mount Princeton

This morning I snapped this picture from my car at the entrance to the Buena Vista Sanitation District. See? Even the garbage and sewer water systems in Chaffee County have a grand view of the mountains! That's Mount Antero (left) and Mount Princeton (right).

Gorgeous Colorado Mountain Scene

Gorgeous Mountain Scene

A pretty mountain scene from the edge of Chaffee County Road 339. This is about four miles due west of Buena Vista, Colorado. So gorgeous! I also made a video showing 180+ degrees of the scenery.

Mount Princeton, a Grand 14er

Mount Princeton Colorado

I was on the dirt road behind the Maxwell Park School when I snapped this picture. Ahhhh Mount Princeton looks so grand doesn't it? :)
