Lake Marie, Wyoming

I took a slight detour/adventure trip last weekend while camping at Curt Gowdy State Park in Wyoming. I drove about 1.5 hrs West of our camp spot to the top of the Snowy Range pass, to go fish a little alpine lake I remember from a day-trip with my wife Katherine back in the fall of 1996 or 1997.

Nestled near the top of the Snowy Range Pass, just west of Laramie Wyoming, sits these lakes and the picture below is of Lake Marie. Wow. What a scene! Fishing was pretty good too, catching Rainbows and Brookies on a Parachute BWO.

Sunflowers

Finally was able to make it out to a sunflower field and I was lucky to have chosen one close by and that was near peak!

Colorado Wildlife

Another camping trip in the books. This time we ventured into the State Forest State Park area on the west side of Highway 14/Poudre Canyon Drive over Cameron Pass, near Gould, Colorado.

The images below were captured on a side trip up to Long Draw Reservoir Road towards Peterson Lake near Chambers Lake at the top of Cameron Pass. I think there were more cars on this dirt road than on the paved Highway 14. But it was an awesome side trip with lots of animals under perfect lighting conditions.
