A Cause for Eye Strain

The White-tailed Ptarmigan wears a great coat of feathers that hides him against the rocks as he forages … in the summer months.

Sunrise From Cloud Level

On my last day of camping at Mount Evans, I drove to the summit of the mountain (quite daunting in the dark!) to capture a sunrise from the summit. The view from this vantage point was quite impressive, and the layers of clouds really helped to make this a wonderful sight as the sun rose […]

Fun Friday: Where’s Waldo?

On one of my trips back down from the summit of Mount Evans, a small group of Ptarmigan were encountered that were foraging among the rocks, beside the road. Ptarmigan reside in these higher altitudes, but are difficult to spot as they blend in so well with their surroundings. Luckily, this small group were walking […]
