Exploring Colorado


Every summer, my dad and I take a trip fly fishing and exploring for photography spots, we have used Colorado for 6 different summers. My wife and I travel there often as well. Here are just a few of my stories from the area.

First up in Forest Lakes on Rollins Pass in the James Peaks Wilderness area.
