Ice Fishing on Lake Loveland

Today we drove to Rocky Mountain National Park (where I spent 24 hours over the summer) to see what the park looks like in the winter. Driving west on U.S. Route 34, we drove by Lake Loveland in Loveland, Colorado where I spotted numerous people ice fishing. While I never found out how thick the ice was, I thought it looked like they were walking on water from a distance.

Today we drove up to Fort Collins, Colorado and visited the New Belgium Brewery where their flagship beer Fat Tire is brewed. Although we arrived too late to get the guided tour, they offer four samples of the different beers that are also brewed there. I wish I could find these beers more easily in Washington, DC!

This morning I was greeted by Dorothy the neighborhood doe and her friendly herd that live near my mom’s remote property in the mountains of Colorado. The leading deer named Dorothy apparently has grown up in the area and even comes when called by her name.
Below are 9 more photos that I took when she & her herd came by the house:
The 11 Mile Canyon Dam

Today we drove up a snow-covered County Road 96 outside of Lake George, Colorado to the 11 Mile Canyon Dam. The photograph above was taken from the edge of the restricted area near the Spillway campground (see map below). It shows the face of the 153 foot tall 11 Mile Canyon Dam that was constructed in 1932. The water from this dam forms the South Platte River, which flows through the city of Denver and supplies a substantial amount of the city’s drinking water from reservoirs further downstream.

The other day I noticed a new incoming link from the University of Colorado at Boulder. I thoroughly enjoyed going through their list of links and I hope the students & educators find my Geospatial Art useful in the studies.

A Black Bear in Rocky Mountain National Park

When I told my mom about going to Denver she mentioned that she & my step-father had been hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park earlier the week before and had spotted a black bear for the first time. When they were hiking down the trail they came across this black bear chowing down on termites in the trunk of the tree. They waited for awhile before the bear walked off. She sent me these two photographs for proof.
Last month I was in Rocky Mountain National Park for 24 Hours and didn’t see any large wildlife.
