Barr Lake State Park

Filed under: Photo Blog — Mia @ 1:36 pm

Barr Lake State Park has evening ranger tours and pontoon boat rides that I learned about from a friend in guitar group. These are Barr Lake photos that tested the Vibration Reduction feature of my new Nikkor 18–200 lens. None was taken with a tripod.

Moraine Park Camping

Filed under: Photo Blog — Mia @ 11:48 am

I loaded my Art Theory and Criticism assignments onto my iPod Touch and headed for the forest. The three nights in Rocky Mountain National Park were cooler than in Denver, and gave me a break from the city pace. I awoke to grazing deer, each morning, and Estes Park was just a few miles from the campground. Hundreds of elk spent late afternoons in Moraine Park.
