  1. Colorful Breckenridge

    28 Aug 2021
    It was back in the rental SUV for another road trip, a short one this time, Boulder to Breckenridge and a 2-night stay. Just short of 2 hours on the road, about 80 miles on good roads. I traded in that lumbering 4Runner for the smaller, better handling Ford Edge.…

  2. Route 133 to Where?

    18 Aug 2021
    As I mentioned in my previous post, I spent too little time in Telluride and it definitely warrants another visit. For this trip, after consulting Google Maps and Apple Maps, I planned about a six hour drive back to Boulder. You know the expression “You make plans and God laughs?”…

  3. Telluride. Posh Mountain Lifestyle

    18 Aug 2021
    My visit to Telluride, unfortunately, felt more like a drive by. I got there early but nary a parking  spot could be had. It turns out there was a jazz festival in town. After circling blocks and scanning the streets,  I got lucky and found a space. Telluride was packed…

  4. Hooray for Ouray

    17 Aug 2021
    After my stay in Salida, I ventured to Ouray. Ouray is 9 miles as the crow flies from Telluride, if you don’t have wings it’s 50 miles by car, about an hour’s drive. The Main Street of the town is as charming as it gets, with a great mix of…

  5. Surprising Salida

    14 Aug 2021
    It was time to take advantage of my extended stay here in Boulder, time to hit the road. I’d heard wonderful things about Telluride, but I was not up for a seven hour drive in one shot, so I decided to break the trip up. I looked at a map,…

  6. Small Town, Smaller Town

    05 Aug 2021
    By Rocky Mountain standards, Boulder is considered a real city with a population of over 106,000. Nederland, has a population of 1700. Still, it offers up good restaurants. I had a great breakfast at Ned’s and a fantastic Reuban at the Deli. There are all the shops you’d expect and…

  7. Serendipity

    28 Jul 2021
    One of the things I enjoy rambling about without an agenda is the nice little serendipitous surprises I experience. My friend Bob is visiting me here in Colorado and is not averse to joining me at 6:00 in the morning as I hunt for photographs. Today was particularly fruitful The…

  8. Mr. Blue Sky

    15 Jul 2021
    “Mr. Blue Sky, please tell us why, you had to hide away for so long,  so long, where did we go wrong?”  (Thank you, ELO) Today the sun rose in a bit of haze over Boulder, a few minutes later it was shining brightly. This gave me my first shot…

  9. Sculpting the female nude

    20 Jun 2021
    It was 1966, the movie Blow-Up was in theaters. David Hemmings is a young photographer, both journalist and fashion photographer, a combination I would never imagine. The plot, he unknowingly captures the death of a man after following two lovers in a park. I guess you could add voyeur to…

  10. Arts & Artisans

    15 Jun 2021
    I’m not a particularly social type. My wife is the opposite, she’ll know everything about someone, including their family tree and names of their grandchildren in 7 minutes, and, she will remember it years later. Me? I can’t remember the names of my first cousin’s kids. That said, I am…
