This first photo was literally taken in my backyard. It is one of the mule deers that visit almost everyday as they make their way down from the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.
This is a view of South Valley Park which is in in walking distance of my house. I took this photo in the summer, but I also blogged about hiking on a trail in this park recently on this post.
Another deer that was walking in the park and the very blue mile high sky.There is lots of wildlife here! Besides deer, there are elk, mountain lions, black bears, coyotes, rabbits, ground hogs, hawks, eagles, grouse, wild turkeys and many different kinds of snakes, including rattlesnakes. There is definitely a lot I have to learn about living in such close proximity to nature.
Colorado's big sky and a view of the some of the ancient red fountain formation rocks in the open space of our community. I took this photos while walking on a private trail that only residents can use. You can see some of my neighborhood's houses in the background.
As you can see, I left the excitement of life in the big city for life on the beautiful front range. It is a big change, but one that has filled me with joy. I love New York and I love Colorado!
