Our final camping trip for 2015 in Golden Gate State Park. A fantastic, relaxing weekend with good friends, some playing in the mountains, and generally just doing nothing.
Gregg and I decided to take a quick photo excursion up to Lake Isabelle in the Indian Peaks Wilderness last Sunday to see how the wildflowers were doing. We got some decent shots on the way in to Lake Isabelle, with the high clouds diffusing the light perfectly.
I took a half-day to go play in the mountains with Pam Price. Took a quick drive through the clouds to the top of Mount Evans, then back down the mountain to dinner at Kachina Southwestern Grill in Westminster. It’s always great getting back together and catching up!
The annual Steamboat trip with the Lowrimores in late fall/early winter this year was over the Thanksgiving day holiday. Five days of fun with friends, just relaxing, playing in the mountains (not on ski slopes). There’s really not much snow up here yet, but we come up here often enough that we know where to play when the snow’s low. And it gave us a chance to go take some pics up by Steamboat Lake.
ay 5 of our trip begins with shooting sunrise pictures from the balcony of the hotel and the news that a fairly significant winter storm was coming in and planning to dump 4-8 inches of snow in Flagstaff. I did some preliminary scouting and figured we could drive to the east a little, then head due south to Petrified Forest (Kash REALLY wanted to go back there to take pictures, for reasons that will remain with Kash)
Day 3 of a 4 day photo excursion to the south-western deserts. This day was at Horseshoe Bend and Lower Antelope Canyon.
Day 2 of a 4 day photo excursion to the south-western deserts. This day was in the Vermillion Cliffs National Park, Buckskin Gulch, Southern Coyote Buttes and Navajo Bridge.
