Telluride, CO is the town you are looking at. Vacation spot of the stars, including Tom Cruise.

This is a look back at the switch backs we took, coming down the mountain. One of the most scenic passes, in Ouray. Telluride is the town below this pass.

Did you meet my friend Rachel when you were there?

She collected over 3,500 photos I loaded them on the FTP Server Yesterday. Our goal is to have them all on the site by mid week, next week.

We spent a couple of nights in Chama, NM.........this is the last night of our vacation. It was a fantastic trip, with only a little accident to our Rottweiler. She stepped on a cut beer bottle, and cut her wrist through the vein. After making a speedy return to town, from the trail, we got her sewn up. We were very fortunate that she did not bleed out, in the 45 minute trip back to town.

I shoot both. But in a place like that, I would probably want excellent quality enlargements of some of the pics. You still can't beat film for enlargement quality. Even better medium format would take some killer shots!

And it looks like he took plenty of great shots!

What kind of camera were you using BV?

I used a Panasonic DMZ-FZ30 which is equivalent to a 35mm with a 12X optical zoom. With the digital zoom, it will go to 15X. That is how I got some of the animal pictures, from far away. I took about 300 pictures, but did not want to put them all on here. The quality of the pictures, especially the closer up ones, can be enlarged to large screen size, without any distortion. It will shoot up to 8.3 Mega pixels. It has many options, and I am still learning how to use it. I usually just keep it on auto.

Sounds like a good camera. I am still working with a Minolta Z1 with a 10x optical zoom. I bought my jeep in January, so I am stuck with that camera for a while... you know, too much stuff to do to the jeep. I like the Minolta and bought it because I wanted some creative control rather than just a point and shoot. I can use apeture priority or shutter priority. It is only a 3 mp though, so that's why I use my Minolta SLR if I want to enlarge prints.

You did a great job on composition of those pics. They look great.

If you came down to South Florida, you would see a lot of trucks set up like that one. 2 1/2 Ton running gear, big blocks, 44's, and custom 4 links is how the big boys like to roll down here. Thats odd seeing a truck like that in a place where it is mostly hilly and rocky terrain. But i would love to see that thing in the mud!!!

Absolutely beautiful country! The pics are great. There's nothing quite like getting away to an unspoiled area to rejuvinate, restore and de-stress. Looks like a really good time.

I lived in Denver for a while, but was too busy "making a living" to get out, explore and truely enjoy the area....wish I had.

I zoomed in on the "For Sale" sign. It does have the top loader Rockwell axles, rear hydraulic steering. If you know of anyone that wants to buy this truck, I would be more than happy to go up there, and haul it down for someone. I am sure you could get a great deal on it. I believe it would be a better truck in the mud, than on the rocks. I also have more pictures of the truck, if anyone is interested.

There is a reason for the difference in pictures. I found this out after looking at my pictures from past wheeling shots. When taking a picture of a climb, one tends to level out the action with the camera. You know how we always notice that pictures don't do justice to the level of difficulty, in reality. If you look at your picture, and look at Carlos, and the pool of water in front of your Jeep, you will notice that the action was leveled. I found that I literally had to over compensate for this natural phenomenon. The water in that hole would literally run out, if it could. Holly, took a great shot, but tried to make you level, in the camera.

I understood that from the start Greg. As I was trying to say, with the amount of people that showed up, for the Jamboree, they had broken up in about four groups, and met in different places around town. I did not know where the main meeting spot was for the whole group, and only found two locations that they were meeting at, for the runs. By the time we were done with our wheeling, we did not feel much like doing anything else, other than eat, talk, and go to sleep. Sorry I missed her, and her dad.

Looked like a helluva trip Blu. Glad you all had both ways safe and sound (Except for the pup incident, but sounds like it turned out well.)

Great pictures too. Thanks for sharing.
