August in Colorado

I was in Denver again this past week for work, and visiting friends.

And seeing a Rockies baseball game.

And seeing the Goo Goo Dolls concert at the Red Rocks Amphitheater.  (Wow, that’s an awesome place!)

I also had a chance to do a little hiking.  I borrowed a friend’s copy of the book Hiking Colorado’s Front Range, and selected a hike around Mount Galbraith, near Golden.

Here’s the GPS track from my hike. I used the new Garmin GPSMAP 62s, which I really like.

Denver

This past weekend, I was in Denver visiting friends and attending a couple of parties.

On Friday, I went to Roxborough State Park, southwest of Denver.

Roxborough is a pretty park, with some nice red rocks.  I’d been to Roxborough a few years ago, spending a few hours with John Fielder, a well-known Colorado photographer.  At the suggestion of the park ranger at the front gate, I hiked the South Rim trail, which I had not hiked before.  This was an excellent choice, with good views of the rock formations in the middle of the park.

I was also in town to attend the opening reception for a show entitled “Sense of Place | Landscape Photography”, at the FLASH Gallery in Lakewood, Colorado.  One of my Bosque del Apache photographs is in the show, which runs June 11 through August 1, 2010.

I was honored that about twenty of my friends from the Denver area made it to the opening reception.  Thanks to all of you who made it out on a rainy night.  Here I am at the gallery with one of my best friends, Nancy.

I enjoyed the whole weekend, including the cool weather, and hope I’m back soon.
