Red Clay CreekWe’re always looking for things to do in the Fall since it’s one of the best times of the year to be outside. This year we took a Fall foliage ride through the Red Clay Valley on the Wilmington and Western Railroad. Thanks to the terribly warm weather we’ve been having, there wasn’t too much color but it was a fun trip nonetheless. We upgraded to the open air car which gave me a better opportunity to test out my brand new camera, a Nikon D5700. Yes, I finally replaced my trusty D90. I’m very happy with the new camera and there will be MANY more photos to come!

In the meantime, take a look my first photos from the Wilmington and Western Railroad.

Photos from the Rockies – My Colorado Trip

Rocky Mountain National ParkFor our late summer trip this year, we decided to go to Rocky Mountain National Park. We started in Estes Park, the eastern gateway to the park. Once we’d settled on this, we did what we always do. We mapped out everything there was to do for about 100 miles around and laid out a plan to hit every one of them. We changed hotels every night or two, but we managed to do everything on our carefully planned itinerary in Estes Park, Boulder, Colorado Springs, Canon City, Cripple Creek, Pueblo and Denver. We’d never spent much time at high altitude before so we weren’t sure how much it would slow us down. As it turned out, it didn’t slow us down at all. We walked over 50 miles and climbed more stairs than I can count (don’t worry, my FitBit did count all of it!). We saw innumerable wild animals and took in some of the most breathtaking scenery of any of our trips.

It’s taken a few months but I got all of the photos from the trip sorted and you can check them out right here.
