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 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.

Here’s a slideshow of photos I took in the autumn of 2008 while tramping around in Lost Maples State Park. Very remote, with no shopping malls, no cellphone service, no crowded freeways; yet it’s a wonderful place to “get away from it all” and enjoy the peace and quiet and rugged beauty of the Central Texas Hill Country. Here’s a link to a gallery that contains more Lost Maples photos —
