More from Colorado


I am linking up with   Mosaic Monday and Our World Tuesday 

 I am sharing more photos from our trip to Colorado..These images were from our day of hiking around Bear Lake, Alberta Falls and Sprague Lake.. I did manage to see some birds on our walks. And the scenery is just gorgeous.. 



 The birds seen on this day were the Stellar Jay, Mallards, Merganser and a Junco..

 One of our hikes was to Alberta Falls, a pretty walk some colors along the way and a cute ground squirrel.


 These photos are from the loop trail around Bear Lake.


 Above are some of the scenic views from our walk around the Sprague Lake.  I hope you enjoyed our scenic hikes.  As always I thank you in advance for stopping by and for the nice comments.

I hope you can join in on our at  Mosaic Monday and   Our World Tuesday

 Thanks to Judith our new host of Mosaic Monday and to the hosting group of Our World Tuesday: Arija, Gattina, Lady Fi, Sylvia, Sandy and Jennifer.  I wish everyone a happy week ahead!

Oh Eileen I would love to have been with you on this hike.
What amazing countryside and mountain vistas.
That little squirrel is sooo cute. I've only ever seen two and that was in England - we don't have them in NZ!

Cindy said...

Thank you Eileen, I just had The French Gardener write down what I was reading off your blog and looks like we are going to take that hike around the lake. Amazing photos, thanks for sharing, we might not get there on our road trip for 3 weeks yet, we just arrived in Manitoba this evening.

DeniseinVA said...

Another awesome post Eileen, loved the collages and that beautiful Steller Jay and the other birds. The scenery is stunning also. Have a great week :)

ann said...

I certainly enjoyed photos, but as a Colorado native, I will have to look up Bear Lake because I don't know where it is. I am glad that you enjoyed your trip to Colorado. Your photos do it justice.

Great place to experience to make your life expectancy longer p:-) I especially to see the fall like Alberta Falls; negative air ions♪ We call it 'minus ion'; Japanese English, haha.

Veronica Roth said...

Hi Eileen.
We were away in the country for last weekend and had mergansers and jays and Juncos around too. I especially love the mergansers to pieces. Looks like you found the most beautiful country. Very, very much like right here. (except much sunnier...lol...here it's soggy to the max right now)

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

Holy moly there are some good shots there. A couple I'd steal and claim as my own (particularly the falls, mountains across the lake...wow)

ladyfi said...

Helma said...

What are you doing this always fun with different photos in a photo. The first one with the blue bird is always great to see but also one with the waterfall and the beautiful nature is really shitt go! My compliments.

Poppy said...

I can smell the fresh air, Eileen, coming down from the mountains, and circulating above the water; how invigorating it must have been!!

Wishing you a lovely week!

Colorado scenery is indeed out of this world! And your shots did a great job of capturing it. The ground squirrel looks like he's definitely caloried up for winter~

Great photos and wonderful scenery. I especially like the photo of the Jay.

The Alberta Falls and landscape are magnificent but the billowy clouds above also added texture to the scenery!

Leovi said...

Nice pictures, I love this beautiful wonderful place!
Saludos!

Joyful said...

Such lovely mosaics Eileen with lots of lovely birds and scenic locations. May I ask what software program you use for mosaics. I used to use one free one and since my last computer died I haven't reinstalled it due to virus potential.

Linda H said...

Such beautiful photos of Colorado's wonderful scenery. I can almost smell that clear mountain air! Love the jay and the ground squirrel...
