How about a little throwback for the weekend? I imagine these wildflowers were feeling the warmth from the first rays of morning sun. Nowadays, they are long gone and covered under blankets of snow. Speaking of snow, I will be ramping up the activity soon in advance of a mountaineering trip to Mexico in January.

It has been a few weeks since I last posted. I’ve been tied up with some things outside of photography. I’m still here though. I thought I’d share a photo of a goat that tried to kick rocks down on us. It was beautiful for photography, but dangerous when curiously observing above climbers. . . . . . . . . #outtherecolorado#colorado_creative#colorado#wildandco#coloradotography#viewsfromcolorado#viewcolorado#onlyincoloradousa#mountaincommunity#welivetoexplore#wildernessculture#stellar_shots#discoverearth#theworldshotz#usaprimeshot#climbing#alpinism#14er#14ersofcolorado#highaltitude#optoutside#rei1440project#mountaineering#sonyalpha#rayers2018

Daydreams taking me back to one of my favorite places ever. How about a lovely late summer dusk on the Salmon River @awpangle ?

From the top of Disappointment Clever (12,300ft), we saw first light on Ingraham Flats (11,100ft) while Mt. Adams stared back at us in the background. Viewing the camp on the flats from here made us feel pretty insignificant in size, yet still awe-inspired. . . . . . . #welivetoexplore#sonyalpha#mountaincommunity#wildernessculture#peakexposure#peakexposuremedia#adventureenthusiasts#folk_life_mood#ig_landscape#igtones#sunrise#alpinism#highaltitude#pnw#washington#alpenglow#mountaineering#14er#mtrainier#ilovenature#usaprimeshot#earth_shotz#awesome_earthpix#theworldshotz#discoverearth#pnwonderland#rainierwatch#optoutside#rayers2018

The weather swung pretty quick. Three weeks ago, I was staring at all this gold color in mild temps. The last few days have brought much cooler temps and snow to the high country. Could this be the best winter précip year since I moved here in winter of 2013-2014?🤞🏻🤞🏻 . . . . . . #ig_landscape#ig_tones#leafpeeping#fall#winter#winteriscoming#colorado#viewsfromcolorado#viewcolorado#visitcolorado#coloradogram#autumn#fallcolors#igtones#optoutside#awesome_earthpix#discoverglobe#ig_landscape#mountainlife#sonyalpha#rayers2018

Yesterday was a very gray day in Colorado. The Rockies were swept and the Broncos forgot to show up in New York to play the Jets. Along those same lines, the weather was sleepy. So, I took the opportunity to try my hand at aerial photography. This location was the first to pop into my head as an ideal vantage point of the city. I think some sunsets from here my be in my future feed. . . . . . . #303#milehighcity#denver#denvercolorado#citypark#cityparkdenver#dji#djispark#djiphotography#dronephotography#dronestagram#moodygrams#moodyphotography#ig_landscape#ig_tones#rayers2018

Along the same theme of last night’s post, here is our summit photo from Sunday’s bag. Two of my favorite things in the world: 1) My sweet Lola and 2) Mountains.

Each time I take on a 14er, it is an entirely unique experience. The summit is always the goal, but I hold onto memories that I experience along the way. Every.Single.Time. Some of these are intrinsic while others are outright obvious and can be captured by the glass. This past weekend was my birthday weekend and my present was getting to experience my daughter bagging her 4th 14er. I felt so much pride as I could see the maturity she showed in managing her emotions, staying focused on the goal, and taking the good along with the bad. That was one hell of an intrinsic reward for me. For the glass, we were lucky enough to experience a beautiful sunrise over the Arkansas River Valley. On the opposite side of the valley, that sunrise beamed some amazing alpenglow on Mt. Princeton. There was not much editing needed for this one. Enjoy! . . . . #sunrise#chasinglight#ig_landscape#igtones#sunriseporn#14er#14ersofcolorado#co14ers#mtprinceton#sawatchrange#rockymountains#awesome_earthpix#coloradotography#coloradoshared#coloradogram#coloradoinstagram#coloradogram#viewcolorado#ilovenature#sonyalpha#optoutside#choosemountains#colorado#rei1440project#rayers2018

Good morning and happy weekend friends. I have a strong itch to get back on a glacier. I think back to the few days I spent on Rainier and the beautiful sunrises I would watch each morning. It’s a completely different world. I’m making plans for a new adventure in January, but in the interim I’m taking the kiddo up a 14er this weekend. Hopefully, she bags her 4th peak. Crossing my fingers that I can post success pictures tomorrow! . . . . #mtrainier#pnw#choosemountains#adventurenthusiasts#wildernessculture#ilovenature#awesome_earth#discover_earth#sonyalpha#mountaineering#landscapephotography#ig_landscape#alpinism#14er#sunrise#chasingsunrise#sunrises#optoutside#rayers2018

The headwaters of the infamous Colorado River are located in the National Park where we were exploring this past weekend. The nerd in me always finds the origin of major rivers to be really interesting. From the headwaters to the Grand Canyon and eventually on to Mexico, it all starts here. . . . . #colorado#coloradoriver#rockymountainnationalpark#rmnp#headwaters#ig_landscape#awesome_earth#discoverglobe#ilovenature#colorfulcolorado#viewcolorado#viewsfromcolorado#colorado_creative#coloradotography#coloradogram#coloradoinstagram#optoutside#sonyalpha#zeiss#rayers2018
