Butterfly Pavilion

Friday, August 9, 2013

This is not the typical trip report you will usually find on this website, but while we were on a trip to Denver I took Kelly to visit the Butterfly Pavilion in Westminster. While we were there I got to finally play with my 100mm macro lens and had a lot of fun photographing the many butterflies. Here’s a few of the photos I took during our visit.

Uncompahgre Peak

Saturday, June 30, 2012

At 14,309 feet, Uncompahgre Peak is the highest point in the San Juan Mountains and the 6th highest in Colorado. It was also our destination this morning. After work on Friday, Jackson and I loaded up my Jeep and headed south to the San Juan’s. We made a quick stop for dinner in Montrose and then we were soon passing through Ouray and turning off the highway on the rough road following the Uncompahgre River and Mineral Creek.

Western Colorado Botanical Gardens

Sunday, March 7, 2010

We were originally planning on heading to Arches National Park today so we could hike to Delicate Arch. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate with us, so we ended up staying home. After having some breakfast, Amanda remembered that it was the first Sunday of the month, and that the Western Colorado Botanical Gardens offers free admission today. It was a great opportunity to play with my new lens. Here’s some of the photos I took on our trip there.
