Towards Estes Park

Posted by karla (Omaha, United States) on 4 April 2011 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

So now we leave the series on MacGregor Ranch along the dirt road that brought us here. The view is toward the mountains that surround the town of Estes Park, Colorado. (Maybe someone who knows the area can name those peaks.) It's a fine, warm August day, around noon, slightly hazy, with just a bit of breeze. The area has other historical places to see, mountains and lakes to enjoy, numerous hiking trails, and a vast Rocky Mountain National Park system. It's a beautiful and friendly place to visit. I hope to return someday!

Thank you for visiting! Your comments and suggestions are very much appreciated.

I like how your fence leads the viewer right over to the mountains. I haven't been to Estes Park and the park in many years, but it's a fabulous place to visit.

You know you got me with this one. Perfect composition, and nice view of Longs Peak. Wish I was there now. ;-)

@B. Thomas: Me, too ! Thanks for the comments and your appreciation of the image. So that is Longs! I wondered if the Estes Cone is in there, also.
