1 Shot Wednesday: Colorado Aspens

Counting down the days until we head to the Colorado Rockies for some quiet time at a lake cabin. Last time Jim and I went to the San Juan National Forest just north of Durango, we camped outside of Telluride. This time we are trying out Vallecito Lake. There’s giant Pike lurking in the depths, and Jim wants to catch one. I remember as a girl living in Northern Wisconsin; I was awestruck by fishermen coming to shore to clean their catch. With monstrous teeth in a wide mouth, and its length at 1 meter (3 and some feet), Pikes are predators and scavengers. Let him fish. I’m kayaking and taking pictures of Aspen trees. Stay tuned!

Five Shots: Colorado Aspens

These pictures were taken today and tomorrow of 2015. We were hoping to return to South Central Colorado for fall break, but it didn’t work out. A revisit through the photo album will have to suffice. Which one do you like best?

We were fortunate the weather was perfect. Capturing a perfect day locks in the memory and lessens the sting of a humdrum day.
