A Year in Colorado

In late 2000, I packed up my jeep and headed for a spot in the Uncompahgre Valley between Ouray and Ridgway, Colorado. I’d visited this beautiful area many times over the years and vowed to live there for a time if I had the chance. Well, I took that chance and spent all of 2001 and a few months of 2002 living, working, and photographing the beauty of the San Juan Mountains and the area around Ouray, Ridgeway, and Silverton, Colorado.
