The Magnificent Rockies

I was going through my old photograph folder form 2012 and I came across these beautiful photos from Colorado. I had picked them and saved them for writing a travel blog long back but I never had the time for that last year. I do not have the time for that even now so I thought I will just post them as photographs and may be write the blog later if I ever have time (rather if I ever overcome my writers block).

Colorado is the most beautiful of all the places I have been to so far… The Rocky mountains are serene, calm, magnificent and so peaceful… It’s heaven for nature lovers like me… I’ve decide if I ever want to settle down after my retirement it will be near the Estes National Park πŸ™‚Β Now I will stop rambling and leave you all with the pics…

Moments when you feel if your friend takes a wrong turn you are all going to die! Specially if you are sitting on the front seat beside the driver πŸ™‚

Crimson Sky

These pictures were taken on an iPhone through the windshield of the car (I apologize for the grainy quality) at around 6:16 am in the morning in late July 2012 when we were coming back from an awesome trip to the Rockies in Colorado. This is how Nebraska greeted us. πŸ™‚

Car Trail

This snap was taken on the way to the Rocky Mountain National Park on a very rainy and windy day in late July 2012. I love the colors in this snap. The chain of cars coming back down really scared our group as we thought that the hikers trail might be closed due to the rains, and we had only quarter of a day left for our vacation. But as soon s we started our ascent the skies cleared and we saw a very beautiful sunny Rockies. We even caught glimpse of the widest rainbow that I have ever seen in my life. More Colorado snaps will follow soon.
