Dark Hollow Waterfall

Dark Hollow Falls is located in Shenandoah National Park and is a very popular site to visit.  We were there on a pretty rainy, chilly, day, yet there were still a few others hiking the trail with us.









Grand Caverns

Grand Caverns, in Grottoes, Virginia, is a series of limestone caves that was discovered in 1840.  During the civil war soldiers from both the Union and Confederate armies holed up in the caves,  The last photo shows signatures on a cave wall from some of the Confederate soldiers.







Falling Springs Waterfall

Just north of Covington, Virginia is this cool waterfall off the side of the road.  Apparently it is, or was, a bit dangerous to access because it has been fenced off and you can only see it from the side of the road.



Cross Keys Vineyard






Albemarle Cider Works

A nice little cidery just south of Charlottesville...

Flying into Baltimore

Early morning flight into Baltimore, on the way to Denver

Driving South from Estes Park along Colorado State Route 7


The eastern slope of Longs Peak - 14,259 feet to the top!


Drove around a bend in the road and came upon this little chapel, seemingly in the middle of nowhere.  St. Catherine of Siena Chapel, also known as the Chapel on the Rock.  It was built in the 1930's and was visited by Pope John Paul II in 1993.  Currently it is in the midst of a major renovation after a 100 years flood destroyed the natural terrain around it in 2013.  The chapel itself was left untouched, but because of the renovations we were unable to go inside it.

A statue of Jesus stands on a hill overlooking St. Catherine of Siena Chapel.
The right side of the photo shows a good view of the erosion of the terrain caused by the flood in 2013.

Evergreen Lake

Up around the bend is...

Another attempt (see below) to blur the motion of the water without a tripod.  This time the water coming down the lake's spillway turned out a little better.

Breckenridge

The Rockies from downtown Breckenridge.  You can see some of the ski slopes in the lower left.

The Blue River runs right through downtown Breckenridge.  

I tried to take a long exposure, to blur the motion of the water, but didn't have a tripod with me

Images of Clear Creek between Silver Plume and Georgetown, Colorado

Snow Melt from Mount Evans keeps the creek cold, and running fast
