Blue Mesa Ice Flow.
The ice on Blue Mesa Lake is melting fast, this reflection caught my eye.
Great Sand Dunes National Park is 3 hours south of Gunnison and is a fantastic place to visit. Nestled against the rugged Sanre de Cristo mountains.
Just north of the border with New Mexico I came across this Unusual Church.
In the heart of the grain belt.
This was taken on the same day as the photo below on the way back into Gunnison.
Blue Mesa Lake is frozen over! This was taken standing out in the middle on the ice at sunset while talking to some ice fisherman who spend days out on the lake fishing through holes drilled through the ice which was a foot thick at this point.
I came across this old Caddy for sale on a trip to see the Bank Manager in Grand Junction. They had some rare snow that stuck. Moral of the story don't visit your bank manager without your camera.
Old School Bus in the Snow
This is proving to be a very challenging subject and this is my second attempt.

"Cottonwood in Snow" Since I took this it has been snowing on and off for a week and we now have a foot and a half in the park.
" Reaching for the Sky" First snow in Hartmans brings a different dimension to a tree I have photographed several times this season, every time different!
"Old School Bus and Clouds" just west of Taylor Lake taken on a beautiful autumn morning on our last trip over Cumberland Pass before winter set in.
Hartmans Rock just one mile south of Mesa RV Resort is one of the most unusual and exciting photo opportunities in Gunnison County.
