    I'm headed to Colorado Springs for 5 days next week. What are some places I can't miss? I'm already doing the regular sites...Pikes Peak, Royal Gorge, Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls...

    Anything spectacular that I need to go shoot?

    I've been to Silverton, CO. I keep tell my wife we need to take a trip out west. Totally different landscapes from what we see on the Appalachian side of the country.

    I went to school there (Colorado Mt. College) then spent three years working as the photographer for the Glenwood Post. :bigthumb:

    I think I've been to Silverton when I was a kid...can't remember for sure.

    We don't have a set itinerary, but we'll be there for 5 days and hope to see quite a bit in that amount of time. Silverton and Glenwood Springs seem a little far for a day trip though.

    :h5: awesome! I love Colorado. I'd probably move there if I could find a good job. I'm definitely toting along the SLR to see what I can come up with.

    If you can manage to make up to Marble, there are some awesome places to shoot. At least there was 35 years ago when I lived there.

    Something I've wanted to do is go to Silverton then do a Jeep trip up to a place called Holy Cross City. I've heard about it from my 4x4 hobby. Its a ghost town at something above 14,000 ft I believe so not a lot of weathering has occurred to the structures. Mostly left as it was over a hundred years ago.

    We're driving so I'm bringing nearly all my gear with me, I hope to get some good shots.

    Actually, I should have said this week in the original post....We're leaving tonight!
