Colorado Adventure - Majestic Beauty

As my Grandpa likes to say about taking photos in Colorado, "...all you have to do is set your camera on the timer mode, and throw it up in the air... you cannot not have a good photo." (paraphrase) In other words, Colorado is so beautiful you really don't have to be a good photographer to take pretty pictures there.

Thanksgiving Day - Mule Deer were all over the place in Lake City. We saw four deer (a buck, two does and a fawn) grazing in the yard of a house which had a camouflaged four-wheeler and a camo hunting truck! I bet that was one frustrated hunter!

Colorado in the 1940's. Well, okay, just a doctored picture.

These are just the best of the best of the nature photos I took. Hope you enjoyed them.
