Pics from the great Rocky Mountains, Colorado

Published September 2, 2016   Posted in Having some fun

No Friday Feast this week as my wife and I are enjoying a much-needed escape from the heat with a visit to the Grand Lake area in the Rocky Mountains. Instead of linking to beautifully-written content, how about some beautifully taken photographs?

At least I hope they are beautiful, as I took them. Here ya go, please enjoy!

P.S. An interview that I did for Andrew over at Family Money Plan went live this week. I may have said that there are no money obstacles anymore. Cocky? Nah…how about confident?

    I was disappointed to read that there wasn’t a Friday Feast, but the beautiful pictures of Colorado are worthy of today’s post. I love Colorado. Such a picturesque, majestic state. Thanks for sharing, Steve.

    Awesome pictures! I loved the one of the storm rolling in at night – really cool!

    We visited RMNP in 2011 and it’s awesome. Unfortunately we were only there for one day and that’s not enough. Will definitely be back someday!

      Thanks Beach Bum, appreciate you dropping by. I use a Sony A6000 and the Sony 18-105 f/4 the large majority of the time. Nice little camera for the most part; lightweight and easy to pack with you. Poor battery life, so I always have an extra battery with me!
