La Veta, CO (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Dikes radiating out from the Spanish Peaks are the subject of an ancient legend. The Devil came out from hell to look at the world. He climbed these "steps" to sit on the Spanish Peaks and plan how to make it his. God learned of his plan and took the mountains and valleys as his own, forbidding the Devil to take the steps ever again, but they still stand!

About visionaire


It can't get much better than being outdoors and WU proves it with each photo expressing the individual vision of the experience. I apologize for not commenting more. I appreciate those who do. Right now, I am more inclined to not spend so much time on the computer and more time with my camera! Thank you to all who view my photos and to the Approvers for recognizing some of them. You all are too kind.
