Yesterday was a beautiful day for a hike! So my grandson, Jackson and I went hiking in a place we'd never been to before, Red Rocks Canyon in Colorado Springs.

Rock quarry.

Swimmer in the quarry.

Trails everywhere!

Jackson found a seat carved out of a tree trunk.

      #6 is just unbelievable! It seems to be flat (why, long zoom?), really successful shot.

      I can see why they call it red rock. It looks a great day to take a hike.

      Looks like you had a good day. Beautiful shots. Like the B&W's and of course the dog in the water. Our dogs would love that..

      The last photo reminds me of what they call butcher block rocks in Zion National Park.

      Beautiful shots! My fav. is no 5; the reflections and the tone create a special mood... And no. 7 looks very interesting with those shadows :)

      Wow, them're some dirty pants. Guess I need to do laundry again! Also, it's interesting seeing that quarry from a different angle. I think my favorite is #6 with the textural differences.
