Buena Vista, Colorado

We went to Buena Vista mainly to play music with our friends, Lloyd and Joyce, but there was time to explore this beautiful area.  This is the Arkansas River.  The photo was taken on the way back from the tunnels.

This photo was taken near the trail head for the Sleeping Indian hike.  One kayaker fell out of his kayak and his two friends went after it and kept it in place until he could catch up to it - not easy in this fast moving river.

We were standing on this bridge near the trail head (The Sleeping Indian is in the background) when we saw a big stick of lightning and heard thunder.  We didn't stay long.

Also taken near the trail head but toward the other direction.

Collegiate Peaks at dusk.

Lloyd and Joyce have two hummingbird feeders who didn't mind at all that the four of us sat under them and visited.  This one was nice enough to pose for a photo.

It started raining hard on our way to Snowy Peaks RV Park where we played music and this rainbow appeared.

A nice lady in the audience offered to take a photo so I could be in it.  We played for about an hour and everyone, including the musicians, seemed to have a good time.

Heading toward town.

These tunnels were once railroad tunnels.

Heading toward Elephant Rock.
