Southern Colorado’s Rocky Mountains

I'm a mountain girl. Something about alpine vistas makes me breathe deep while my heart quivers. That's why I've yearned for Colorado since my first visit 20-odd years ago, and why I now live on the top of a mountain in the Rockies. My honey and I (currently known as Dr. 4×4 🙂 ) were able to take a couple of quick getaways in my adopted home state. Colorado is delish.

This was the view from our hotel window in Salida, Colorado. Hands up, who wants to wake to that view every morning?

I'll post a few photos of Southern Colorado now—especially from the Black Canyon of the Gunnison—and more photos of Colorado's mountainous beauty in the future. Alas, I'm no professional photographer, and in some of these I was still trying to figure out the camera on my new phone, heh—but they'll give you a taste.
