    Over in "General Discussions," recent comments have come from others saying that I should keep in touch and keep showing Colorado pictures after we move there this coming month. However, I wouldn't want to start a new thread that was related mostly to me, so I want to start this one in which everyone can post their pictures taken in Colorado. That way, I will also benefit, especially if other photographers mention where their photos were taken, thus giving me a new place to check out while we are living up there.

    However, I get to fail in informing well with my first photo to show here, because I don't recall exactly where this one was taken. I think it was taken on highway 133, east of Paonia, Colorado.

    Now, I do want to point out that the idea here is to not necessarily limit ourselves only to scenic and wildlife. If anyone has photos taken at museums or other places, I would encourage that those be posted as well.

    Along that line, this image was taken at Michael Garman's Magic Town in Colorado Springs. He has created (sculpted) a city scene that is really interesting to see. One can be looking at one part of the "city" or even inside a building's window and see one scene, only to then have the light change and an entirely different scene appears in the same window or part of the city. Yeppers, it is all done with lights and mirrors. I plan on returning there when we get up there and get better shots than what I show here.

    From what I understand, everything here is sculpted, including the bricks on the buildings and this cigarette machine.

    So, lets share with each other and give each other ideas of new places to see in Colorado.

    My apologies. I meant to include a picture of a wider view of the sculpture at Michael Garman's Magic Town. I thought about it later and went in to get a photo with the cigarette machine within that wider view. Somehow, I didn't take that picture.

    So, instead, here is another photo...

    ...no peeking in the upper window.

    Our family has been visiting this area since the 40's.

    Thanks, Everyone. Those are good looking places, but I'm hungry for more.

    Okie4570, if you could come up with those, it would be great. A good friend at church vacations a lot at Lake City, and I've also never been to Rocky Mountain National Park...

    ...yet. So, bring them on so I can plan out where to go.

    Rocky Mountain is beautiful, Trail Ridge Road through the park is incredible, have someone else drive so you can take pics. I could spend a month there easily..............Grand Lake outside the SW corner of park is beautiful too. It's the only place I've ever seen a moose in the wild.

    You know, I love the road trip out to Colorado.
    Here's pics of Bent's Old Fort near Rocky Ford.
    I know it's in the flat land but spend some time to really check it out.
