I recently had the privilege of visiting Summit County in Colorado. During my visit I spent one of the nights outside in the refreshingly chilly mountain air. Even in April there was still several feet of snow on the ground (not a huge surprise when you are over 10,000 ft. above sea level), though the daytime sun was warm enough to be outside in a t-shirt. Being out of the city the stars shone brightly behind the silhouettes of pine trees and mountains. These images reinforce the magic of the camera as the camera captured the stars moving across the night sky.
For my birthday this past December I received a state parks pass, so we decided to head over to the nearest Texas state park and check out Cedar Hill State Park. It was nice to be out in 70 degree January weather. The trails were quite nice and I can only imagine how wonderful it must look in the seasons where everything is green (will surely be back to check it out).
I plan to post regular updates with photos of my “new” (having moved here in August) surroundings. Just things that I notice in my day to day life in the South.
