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!

  42. 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)

  58. 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.
