Robbie Mandel captured this dancing dual of gypsies in Bohn Park, just above the carved Indian head sculpture, along the trail through the park. If you check out his Facebook page, he seems to be enamored with all things “nature in Lyons.”
It’s not often you see YELLOW reflected on the river… no that’s not the gold mineral, but the gold aspen and cottonwood leaves. I will give you a minute to figure out where the photo was taken. My first thought was… I don’t remember Steamboat Mtn. looking so craggy…
OK, time’s up. It’s the tallest mountain visible in LaVern Johnson Park. Most people know it as the one that the eagles nests are, and where the eagles are seen taking off from. Glen seemed to capture the golden glistening sunlight, too, in the trees on the St. Vrain River, on this beautiful fall day, with weather in the 70s.
Mid-October brought some spectacular pink/red clouds to our area. This one was the most dramatic one that we found. It was taken by Heath Burgess at Blue Mountain Road, near his home, at sunset. Even local TV stations posted photos of our Front Range sky. If you look at Heath’s Facebook page, you will see he definitively loves nature — with his dog Kona appearing in almost every one of his many profile pictures in the past couple of years. Plus, lots of photos of horses and some playful kittens.
Anne Catherine Denning loves to capture the expansive open spaces behind her home in Lyons, both in photographs, and in her mind’s eye. There is so much beauty to see in the mountains and fields surrounding Lyons that sometimes we just have to pause and soak it in… skip the camera… grab the dog …and go for a hike. These are her mountain dogs, Summit and Forrest.
Jackie Brennan captured this golden tree silhouette, with the perfect blazing ball of sun peeking through… typical of the mighty trees that are found in our sandstone mountain parks. Jackie loves to take her dog for a walk around town, and in our parks. This photo was taken in LaVern Johnson Park.
