Wonderful Snow Season Has Begun

Snow Season in Colorado Mountains

Dave Schiefelbein snapped this photo two days ago from Chaffee County Road 375 in the Fourmile region northeast of Buena Vista. Colorado got its first decent snowstorm for the season. The wonderful snow season has begun! :)

The Fall Season In Colorado

Mount Princeton Colorado

This is a photo taken by Tom Hammon at the Trail West Conference Center in Buena Vista two days ago. It's an interesting view of Mount Princeton. (Special thanks to Skip Ecke for displaying this picture on Facebook!)

In other news, I snapped many pictures of the Spanish Peaks around La Veta in Huerfano County yesterday. :)

Mount Princeton Looks Like A Massive Mountain

Mount Princeton Colorado

A nice view of the mountain from the junction of Chaffee County Roads 306 and 361. Sadly, I am back in Trinidad after a weekend visit to Buena Vista. Did you see my update on the traffic light Facebook page? :)

Beautiful Mug Shot

Mount Princeton Colorado

I'm visiting Buena Vista this weekend. Here's a nice mug shot of the mountain. :)

An August Storm In The Mountains

In late August, Dave Schiefelbein sent me this beautiful photo of a storm over Mount Princeton. Finally, after obtaining internet access at my new place in Trinidad, I can post it. Great shot!

"Headed To Crested Butte" - Photo by Shana Black

Mount Princeton, CO

My friend Shana Black was in the passenger seat as she and a friend traveled west on Chaffee County Road 306. They were headed over Cottonwood Pass to the town of Crested Butte. It's funny -- I have a few friends who will send me a picture message whenever they're in Buena Vista. It's an honor they think of me! :)

Summer In Colorado - A July Photo

Mount Princeton, CO

Three weeks ago, I spent a week on a vacation of sorts. I spent most of my time in Buena Vista and Twin Lakes. Of course, I got a few shots of good ol' Mount Princeton. Here's a typical afternoon shot with monsoon clouds rolling in. :)

Mount Princeton Photo by Gayle Gresham

Mount Princeton, CO

Friends in Colorado have been posting photos of Mount Princeton and tagging me on Facebook. Here's a great shot taken yesterday by Gayle Gresham. She lives on the Front Range and has been on an amazing road trip throughout the mountains. Notice all the snow that's still up there! :)

Indian Paintbrush Flower

Above is a photo by David Schiefelbein of Buena Vista. I love the angle and the beautiful indian paintbrush flowers in front. :)

In personal news, I am indeed living in Albuquerque. My hikes and photography in the Land of Enchantment can be accessed from my New Mexico page.

It's Another "Good Bye" From Steve

Mount Princeton, CO

It is with sadness to inform you that once again I have moved away. I got a counseling job offer in Albuquerque, New Mexico and couldn't say "no." There is much I could say on a personal level, but for now I'll just say that since the beginning of January 2015, I was sensing that change could be coming.

Here's a shot of my Honda Civic on Highway 24, just south of Buena Vista. This was two days ago, on the day I drove away. I knew I had to get one last shot of Mount Princeton.

A Big Mountain Before Me

Mount Princeton, CO

There was a big mountain before me this morning. Yep, that's our beloved Mount Princeton. :)

Mesa Antero Neighborhood in Chaffee County

Mesa Antero in Chaffee County, Colorado

I snapped this photo a few days ago with my iPhone4. I was in the Mesa Antero neighborhood (roughly south of Nathrop, north of Centerville, and west of Highway 285) and thought this view of Mount Princeton was pretty.

I apologize for not updating this website as regularly. I'm going through a lot personally, and things are up in the air. I may be moving away. We'll see what happens.

Mount Princeton - Nathrop, Colorado

Nathrop, Colorado

Here's the view of Mount Princeton from the passenger seat of a truck as we drove through Nathrop. The mountain sure looks pretty! :)

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.

Pretty Mountain Scenery on Highway 285

Highway 285, Scenery in Chaffee County

Here's a pretty shot of mountains... as I drove on U.S. Highway 285 between Salida and Buena Vista. Man oh man, you can't beat the scenery out here. :)

Clouds on a Snow Day in Colorado

Mount Princeton, CO

I was driving west on Gregg Drive in Buena Vista when I thought this might turn out to be a good picture. Love the clouds and the fresh snow! :)

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.
