In order to keep the last post somewhat short I only posted about half the images from our trip to Colorado. We woke up on our last full day there to a beautiful morning overlooking the Twin Sisters. Scott's dream is to climb The Diamond so we camped both nights at the Longs Peak campground, and on our way into town that day we stopped at a lookout point to grab some images of the beast that is The Diamond.
After a delicious (and leisurely) breakfast in Estes, we decided to hike to the base of a climb we wanted to do, with the tentative goal of trying to climb it. We got a late start that day though, and by the time we arrived at the base we wouldn't have had enough time to get through the climb before it was dark (and we did not have the provisions necessary to climb or hike back in the dark unfortunately). It was still a beautiful hike, and the route looked like an extremely fun one; and so, yet another climb has been added to our to-do list.
That evening we made our way back to camp and after eating dinner I set up my camera for a time-lapse of our tent. I grabbed a few stills as well since it is my goal to one day create a book of images from all the places we have camped, and I must say, the one after dark may be one of my favorite images that I have taken.
The time-lapse is an extremely simple and short one, but I wanted something more than just a still image to document the evening there.
The next day on our way home Scott wanted to stop again to get some more images of The Diamond, and take one last look at the mountain. It was a nice way of wrapping up our trip, and solidified for us that we need to climb it at some point.
