Buffalo Peaks in Colorado

We recently spent a beautiful afternoon near the Buffalo Peaks.  It was an awesome day with the family, and I saw my first bear in the wild! 

Anna Marie took this shot of me.

Buffalo Peaks are about 90 miles west of Colorado Springs.

We day-camped by the creek.

 Notice the creek crossing the landscape.

 The ripples make a cool pattern in the water.

 Lots of green ...

 ... makes a beautiful mountain-side.

 This is a nice spot to get out of the wind.

 Wild irises are in bloom.


 Mountain Man takes a nap.    ~    Is he really in there?

Elk like the aspen bark.  You can see just how far they can reach.

I shot my first bear!

It was a dream come true.

I might have been scared, but we kept a safe distance, and Jeff & Zach were carrying side arms (as a last resort).

Good-bye little black bear.

Day is done.    ~    Perfect.

O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.     ~Psalm 34:3~
