Video that chronicles a walk along the San Antonio River Walk. I took all footage with an iPhone, hand-held while walking (which accounts for the shakiness of some footage). This is my very first attempt at putting together a video with an iPhone, and I have a LOT to learn.

Rocky Mountain Journey

Photos taken in and around Ouray, Colorado; which includes sights along the “Million Dollar Highway” — 23 twisting and winding miles between Ouray and Silverton, a route that showcases majestic mountains, cascading streams, and colorful stands of Aspen and Spruce trees. All pix taken by Rob & Sandy Vanya. The quaint and picturesque town of Ouray is surrounded on all sides by towering mountains.

Colorado’s Grand Mesa

Colorado’s Grand Mesa is the largest “flat-top” mountain in the nation. Sandy & I took these pix while driving around on the summit in late May of 2009. The lakes on the summit were partially frozen. The temps were near freezing, and we encountered snow and sleet, and a snow plow clearing ice from the roads. Took the pix of us 2 together by placing the camera on a tripod & setting the camera to the self-timer mode. Notice the stark contrast of the terrain once we started to descend from the summit. In a matter of about 30 minutes, we drove from lush forests of aspen and spruce trees to the barren, rocky terrain of the arid, dessert-like topography that surrounds the Mesa. It was strange, passing from one world into another world in such a short period of time. To see larger, high-res versions of the pix, click on this link —

Colorado National Monument

Hope you enjoy this slideshow of pix Sandy & I took when we recently visited the Colorado National Monument, located near Grand Junction. It was stormy and rainy off and on during our drive through the area, which is rare for that part of the state. That’s also why I took some close-up photos of raindrops. Background music: “Carry Me Away” by Govi.
