5 Shots: Vallecito Lake, CO

Just got back from a four-day vacation to Southwest Colorado, 18 miles north of Durango, Colorado. It was a seven-hour car ride from the Verde Valley, AZ where I live. We went to escape the heat and to sit by a mountain lake. Here are some shots of our Airbnb cabin. I wanted lakeside access. I got it! Which shot do you like best?

  4. I could become comfortable with any of the views. How was the fishing? Fall fishing in Colorado can be very nice.

    1. Jim caught a rainbow trout. He was going for the Pike but we discovered you better go there in the spring for those beasts. It was just what I needed. To sit. To listen to the silence.

    1. Thanks, very much, John. I’ll be sharing more soon. Crazy to chase after Aspen trees, but the glow from the filtered light touches me deeply.

  8. That must have been perfect, Cindy. No top pick, as each photo has merit. I am envious of you ‘escaping the heat’, as it is very cold and damp here. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete. x
