The Confused Look

This is an image from 2008 during an overnight in New York City. I’m not sure where they are from but something in their faces tells me they are not from the city.

… in case you didn’t notice! 🙂 Happy Friday! 

Nothing binds you except your thoughts. Nothing limits you except your fear. Nothing controls you except your beliefs.

Sunset at Hiawatha Lake

Sunset at Hiawatha Lake

Nothing makes a sky like the combination of clear skies from rain earlier in the day and scattered clouds. Then when you add a some boats along the shore we have the potential for a nice image. I think that’s we got.

I took this selfie at the cabin in Red Feather Lakes. I thought the light was warm and inviting so I gave it a shot. 🙂

Red Feather Lakes comprises the village which has three small general stores, an Ace hardware store, an outdoor sports shop, a community library, small antique store, and post office. There are several rustic mountain restaurants in the community. It also has several small lakes in close proximity of Red Feather Lakes Village.Dowdy Lake, Parvin Lake, West Lake, and Lake Bellaire are open to the public and maintained by Colorado State Wildlife Areas. There are eight private lakes within the Village that require a membership to access.

I stayed with my friend Don at his rustic cabin. He has had this cabin for the past 16 years and uses it for a sanctuary to get away from the busyness of the city. On Wednesday evening we drove to a couple lakes for any opportunities for sunset reflections in the lakes. Overcast skies and rain fell throughout the day. After eating BBQ chicken from the grill we noticed a break in the clouds with the possibility for some color and reflections. I think that’s what we got.

Watering the Aspens

Watering the Aspens

Elf Lane (also known as “Gnome Road”) is mountain trail in the quaint village of Red Feather Lakes, Colorado. The trail is a quarter-mile long between Lake Hiawatha and Lake Apache.

As you enter Elf Lane, there is a sign posted on a tree that reads: “PLEASE Do not take us, Break us, or Relocate us As We Live Here on ELF Lane to Watch over children and All the Little Animals.” As we walked the trail we found ceramic little characters; elves, gnomes, spiders, Elmo, angels, SpongBob, SquarePants, and many more. The little character who caught my eye was busy watering the aspen tree. 🙂
