My recent trip to Colorado was, as always, all too brief. On our last day I squeezed in one final photo expedition -- a drive up Mount Evans with Taryn and a couple of her friends. My hope was to get some nice shots of mountain goats, bighorn sheep, marmots, and pikas.
Sadly, this small group of sheep made up the entirety of my wildlife photographing. Despite going all the way up to the summit and keeping a sharp eye out, we saw no other sheep, no marmots, and no pikas. There were a handful of mountain goats, but I couldn't get a decent shot of any of them. That's the way it goes with nature sometimes. That made it especially valuable that I'd gotten to shoot some on Grays and Torreys a few days earlier.
bristlecone pines at dawn and staying as long as it takes to see all the critters I want. I always like having an excuse to return to a beautiful place. :)
