Coming from Divide Colorado to Cripple Creek in the Fall is such a thrill. The Aspens perform magic on the landscape in the form of yellow, orange and red. The cool nights and lack of light simply are revealed when the green hues from chlorophyll production fade. Recent local weather conditions and available moisture influence these expansive golden vistas.
Amazing chiseled granite rock that form strong angles and smooth surfaces. Mountains always amaze me in how they form structures of strength. The Rocky Mountains are both fun and challenging to paint. Often times the morning light capture their majestic beauty while the sunset light show their mystery.
Garden of the Gods is located at the base of Pikes Peak. Multiple American Indian Nations traveled through Garden of the Gods. The Utes' oral traditions tell of their creation at the Garden of the Gods, and petroglyphs have been found in the park that are typical of early Utes. The Utes found red rocks to have a spiritual connection and camped near Manitou Springs and the creek near Rock Ledge Ranch bordering Garden of the Gods.
Somewhat a new quest - Horses with their strength, wildness, and beauty. Add the lore and truth of the American Indians and the story becomes even more majestic.
A small collection of exciting misfits.
