I miss not working part-time in Boulder, Colorado. While there I was able to visit Rocky Mountain National Park all seasons of the year. As long as the roads were clear, it was only an hour drive from Boulder to the park. Some of these images were published ten-years ago, and some are new. All have been reprocessed using newer software.
I saw several Big Horn Sheep along Colorado 14 while driving back to Boulder from Arapaho National Wildlife Refuge. Soon after I stopped and started taking pictures with a big lens, several other vehicles also stopped. As soon as the crowd started getting out the Big Horns all turned around and showed their rear ends. Hard to believe, but one day later I was in Hawaii attending a workshop run by Thom Hogan.
I was about to leave for a hike in Rocky Mountain National Park and saw this brown bird with spots outside the Residence Inn where I was staying in Boulder. I got a couple of pictures, but didn’t know what it was at the time. I finally figured out that it was a Norther Flicker. A woodpecker that feeds on the ground. I then went for a hike in the Longs Peak section of Rocky Mountain National Park. A few images — a squirrel, a small white wildflower, and a purple crocus wildflower. Many more images for another day.
