Snow Photos - Buena Vista, Colorado

(A Variety Of Photos From A Snowy October Day in Colorado's Mountains - October 28, 2009)

Late Afternoon

It is safe to say it snows quite a lot in the central Rocky Mountain region of Colorado. As a year-round resident, I have grown accustomed to seeing snow on any given day from September through May. (And sometimes June and July if we're lucky!) On October 28, I was traveling home from Leadville on Highway 24 and had my camera with me and all but the bottom photo were taken on this snowy day. Adjacent Photo: The view south of Granite, CO. I was in the passenger seat and the vehicle's antenna got in the way ...

Snow ... but then I used the sun roof to take more photos!

This shot was taken near the Chalk Creek Reservoir turnoff that leads to Vicksburg and Winfield and the trailheads to 14ers Mt. Belford and Huron Peak.

    I ventured out after dark to capture more photos of the snow in Buena Vista. This first picture was taken while pulled over on Chaffee County Road 306.

    The lack of cars, the tire marks and the red and green lights give this a peaceful and Christmasy kind of look, doesn't it? :) Buena Vista, CO
