View Through Nobel Gate

My last Vintage Weekly post showed Holland's Nobel Gate; this week I'm looking through that gate. It's fun going through old photos - these are from 1977!

Two States

From a 2013 trip, here's a view from Long Island (New York state) over to Connecticut on a clear day. Those buildings are probably Stamford, almost 13 miles away.

Crags Views

A couple of weeks ago I posted a photo of Socks on The Crags. Here are some views from that hike, on the west side of Pikes Peak.

Morning Garden

Occasionally on the way to work I stop by Garden of the Gods to catch the early morning light.
It's worth the short detour.

Winter Sunrise

When the clouds are just right, and there's a break at the horizon, our winter sunrises can be spectacular.
I never tire of these fiery skies.

Across the bay from San Francisco, the small town of Sausalito makes a great day trip.
It's very picturesque, sitting by the water and rising up into the hills.
Boats are easy to spot.
And on a clear day the city of San Francisco can be seen from the area, across the bay.

Muir Woods

Muir Woods is a National Monument near San Francisco famous for its very tall trees.
The photos don't do them justice, as the tallest are 250 feet (79 meters) high - most of these photos were captured with an ultra-wide angle lens.
Looking up can make a person dizzy!
I recommend a visit to Muir Woods to anybody who's visiting the San Francisco area - it's one of the country's truly amazing places.

More Snowy Gardens

Here's another shot from a snowy Garden of the Gods. This is one of my favorite places in the world and it's a nearby city park!
