Visit To St. Elmo, Colorado

February 21, 2009 - I must admit I sometimes become spoiled living in this Colorado mountain wonderland. Sometimes I take the mountains for granted, and stunning mountain views become ordinary.

Well, today I experienced my drive and visit to St. Elmo from the perspective of someone a mountainless and scenery deficient state like Kansas or Texas. I pretended I had never seen these mountains before and snapped pictures of anything and everything I thought would be interesting. I hope you enjoy them!

Oh ... I also made a video this time which can be seen on the left. If you like what you see, you are welcome to visit my library of videos on YouTube. Lots of other Colorado-related stuff in there!

All the best,

I snapped my first picture on Chaffee County Road 162 near Nathrop. Grand views of Mt. Princeton (top) and Mt. Antero (right).

Colorado Mountains Now there's a pretty mountain view that I've taken for granted before! ;)
