Scenery Photos Around Chaffee County

If you ever wondered why I choose to live here, these mountain photos explain why ...
December 2013 - Since my hike of Tenderfoot Mountain in Salida last month, I have not made a write-up about a specific hike or mountain in Colorado. Instead, I've been taking "a few photos here and there" nearly every day, and after two weeks, these are my better scenery photos around Chaffee County, Colorado. Also included are six videos at the bottom.

Road Closed

I headed up Chaffee County Road 306 one afternoon. The road is closed at the Avalanche Trailhead, which becomes a base camp for snowmobilers in the winter. Two pretty mountain photos.
