Buena Vista, Colorado - My Photos and Tribute Page

Buena Vista and Northern Chaffee County
Since 2005, I have lived in Buena Vista, Colorado. I realize that from many people's perspectives, I am living the dream. There is no doubt that the mountain scenery is stunning, and one's access to trails, scenic drives, fishing lakes, etc. is usually a short drive away. Even with the common faults of small town living, Buena Vista offers so many quality-of-life advantages that make it such a desirable place to call home.

On this page are most of my photography and hiking pages in my eight years ... and there are many! For a while, I took so many pictures of the same mountain areas, that I made specific websites that are shown in the large photos below.

By the way, I also include northern Chaffee County and the regions of Nathrop, Chalk Creek Canyon and St. Elmo. There is a seperate page for Salida and Southern Chaffee County and Leadville and Lake County.

Mount Princeton
Mount Princeton
In April 2006, I began to photograph 14er Mount Princeton from various spots and during different times of the day. For over six years, I have consistenly updated this website on a weekly, if not daily basis. www.mtprinceton.org.

Cottonwood Pass
Cottonwood Pass Colorado
Because I have visited the place so often, a website dedicated to Cottonwood Pass on the Continental Divide seemed appropriate. www.cottonwoodpass.net.

St. Elmo
St. Elmo, Colorado
Numerous visits to St. Elmo inspired me to create www.st-elmo-colorado.com.
