I was able to capture this stunning panorama of the Red Rocks amphitheater on my camera!
My home for the week...
My car for the week.
My bed for the week.
My room for the week. Is that Sarah Palin on the TV?
Enough boring pictures... I give you Colorado!
Some incredible rocks piercing the Earth.
At Red Rocks Amphitheater
Colorado residents exercising at the enormous amphitheater.
Residents of Colorado are some of the fittest people I've seen on this blue planet.
There is no escaping the exquisite views of the Rockies... nor was there any reprieve from the constant onslaught of athletes.
Some stunning vistas that cannot be seen anywhere else on Earth.
A small model of the amphitheater. Notice how it's perfectly cut into the mountain side.
Once an ancient seabed, these rock outcroppings now show off their geological strata.
Standing next to a beautiful creek in a photo taken by Maria, my Venezuelan travelmate. :-)
Can you believe this is what Coloradians (is that what you call them?) see on a daily basis?
A small mining town just west of Denver. Time has had no effect here.
Just a few hours ago, we were in Sun and clear blue skies.
And a few hours later and several thousand feet higher, we're in a winter wonderland.
Higher than Machu Picchu?? Wow.
This photograph does not do the real scenery justice. You have to see it for yourself.
Freezing my tail off... but it was worth it. This area was incredible!
Okay, I've seen enough. I'm moving to Colorado. :-P
Skiers and snowboarders enjoying the fresh powder
A quaint little ski resort village in the Rockies.
Can you say desktop wallpaper?
Sleep deprived and badly hungover, the fresh mountain air is the ultimate remedy.
I think I was the only non-white person in this village... lol. But, the people here are super nice.
If I had a girlfriend, we'd be taking a horse ride around town... *sigh*.
An actual gold mine.
Narrow passageways and poorly lit corridors made this mine very scary to navigate. Good thing I'm not claustraphobic!
It was like the set of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
Some poor fella' got crushed under the rocks. ;-)
An old drill used to cut holes into the walls of the mine.
The large chamber used to crush rocks.
This contraption separates the gold from the dirt.
