Somewhere in the Erie/Longmont area yesterday (November 2, 2020), I caught this photo of a hawk flying along a farm, with the Rocky Mountains in the background. As you can see, the sky was perfectly clear yesterday, which is a nice change after all of the fires this summer.

I saw this statue of a child, a dog, and a mask at the Foothills Hospital (Boulder Community Hospital) in Boulder, Colorado on October 28, 2020.
If I lay here
If I just lay here
Would you lie with me and just forget the world?
Today was a bit of a sad day, saying goodbye to some people I’ve known for the last nine years. So I’ve been listening to Chasing Cars, sung by Sarah Bettens.
This is a field of prairie dogs in the foreground and mountain ranges in the background, near my new home in Longmont, Colorado.
Last night we had all sorts of beautiful whispy clouds, throughout the Louisville/Lafayette/Erie Colorado area. For those who can see my Facebook stuff, you can see several more photos at this link.
This is part of the mountain view from the Foothills hospital in Boulder, Colorado.
This short video on Twitter shows the depth of the “front range” of the Rocky Mountains here around Denver and Boulder, Colorado. When you look at them from the ground you can’t get that depth perspective, so this is really a great view.
I took this photo in Estes Park, Colorado, either in September of 2018 or 2019.
If you ever visit the Boulder, Colorado area you’ll hear of the “flatirons.” Many stores and businesses are named after them. This is them.
Registered for gas and electric yesterday in the new town I’ll be living in, about 60 miles south of Wyoming.
Reminded me of moving to the cabin in Talkeetna and trying to figure out where I had to register for everything then. (Turned out it was all an hour south with the MEA and MTA in Wasilla and Palmer.)
Tonight’s brown sunlight, thanks to some wildfires in the Rocky Mountains west and south of Boulder, Colorado.

Sadly, cases of COVID-19 are sharply on the rise in Colorado. I know that MANY people at my apartment complex don’t wear masks as they walk around, swim in the pool, and exercise, so this isn’t a huge surprise.
Up to date data about COVID-19 in Colorado can be found at this page.
My software tells me that I took this photo of the big open sky here in Broomfield, Colorado on January 26, 2014.
Kind of a weird situation: I’ve been thinking about moving lately, and that led to the thought that if a doctor told me I only had six months left to live, I know where I would live. But I generally like a lot of things about Colorado, so I live here. Hmm...
The front of my current apartment complex in Broomfield, Colorado faces the Rocky Mountains, and the back-right portion of the complex has these neigh-bors.

Last night I went up on the roof of the garage at sunset time and ended up with this nice photo. I didn’t have batteries charged for my good camera, so I shot this one with my iPhone.
A few nights ago it looked like pilots were playing a game of tic-tac-toe in the sky over Boulder, Colorado.
The apartment complex where I currently live in Colorado has a basketball goal on the roof of the garage. That doesn’t sound too bad, but the roof is six stories up. That’s just a wee bit intimidating, so for now I’m shooting from inside twenty feet. :)
