A landscape photographer's tour
Keith's travels in the Colorado Rockies - September-October 2008
Loveland Pass and FriscoA quick trip up Loveland Pass from Frisco.
We're having a bit of a break from travelling long distances, before coming back home. Although the weather forecast predicted several inches of snow last night, there was only a light fall higher up the mountains.
On the way to Loveland Pass we passed the Arapahoe ski area, where they are using snow machines to get a ski run open.
A contrast enhanced 100% crop from the image above, showing one of the snow machines and footsteps of someone who had to go up and fire them up.
Loveland pass is just over 12,000 feet - very cold and windy (although nowhere near as bad as in winter)
This is where it is...
Here's Karen, wearing two coats and a hat.
And here I am...
Coming back along I-70, we came through the Eisenhower Tunnel.
40 years ago, you'd have had to go over Loveland Pass to head west.
Back in Frisco I went out for a cup of coffee, and spotted this butterfly making the most of the sunshine.
I looked round and for a moment thought Karen's sister had joined us... :-)
In a small park in Frisco, there are loads of these things hanging from trees - some Halloween related activity...
And in other news, I was interviewed by a local TV station when up at Loveland Pass and I was pulled over by the police for running a stop sign at a shopping centre :-)
Unfortunately, my TV interview was trumped by a lady who had never seen snow before :-)
However, if you watch this, I make a brief appearance towards the end :-)
Note to my Mum ... Click the picture and make sure the computer sound is on!
