The mountain sits 6,000 feet above Grand Junction and breaks 11,000 feet at its highest elevation. This drastic change means that while Grand Junction enjoys comfortably temperate weather all year long, the Grand Mesa becomes a snowy wonderland in the winter. #battlementmesa #parachute #colorado #visitcolorado #travel #golf #paradise #sky #scenery #photography #wild #wilderness #golfcourse #mountains #rockymountainnationalpark #natgeo #nationalgeographic #forest #sunny #mountain #grandmesa #grandmesanationalforest #snow #visitorcenter #coloradolive

While our friends and family in Texas dealt with a triple digit heat index, we ventured up to 7522' elevation and the curvy road to the foot of the Rocky Mountains. We enjoyed a lovely sunny 70 degree day in Estes Park. Mom was happy.❤ . . . . . . . . #estespark #rockymountains #peopleILovebyAMSilva #colorado #colorfulcolorado #visitcolorado #coloradogram #itsbetteroutside #cloudsofinstagram #skylover #beautifulworld #truebeauty #nakedplanet #planetearth #igcolorado #hookemhorns #canonphotography #TeamCanon #mom

We went on a hike with a few other military spouses and their kiddos to this neat place that is technically outside of Colorado Sorings proper. It was a little tricky trying to find it but when we found it, it was worth every minute. I had to baby carry but Thane was having a all playing with other homeschool kiddos and exploring the mines on this blissfully warm day. . . The paint mines have evidence of human life as far back as 9,000 years ago. The park features geological formations including spires and hoodoos that form through erosion that creates gullies and exposed layers of clay and jasper, which give the mines that unique color! . . . @visitcos #visitcolorado #visitcos #visitcalhan #paintedminesinterpretivepark #paintedminescolorado #paintedminescalhan #paintedminespark #paintedmines #visitcoloradosprings #familyonpurpose #wetravelwt #militaryfamilytravel #militaryfamilytravels #milfamtrav #milfamtravel #milfamtravels #travelingmilitaryfamily #travmilfam #travelingmilfam #militarywithkids #everywherefamilies #milmomadventures #strongerthroughtravel #fearlessfamtrav #heartfelttraveler #milfam #travelingmilitaryfamilies #milfamtravel #militarytravel

Temperatures in the mountains typically fluctuate as weather patterns change, especially at the higher elevations. Temperatures can be twenty degrees cooler than in the valley below. In fact, the hottest it has ever been atop the Mesa is just 80 degrees. #battlementmesa #parachute #colorado #visitcolorado #travel #golf #paradise #sky #scenery #photography #wild #wilderness #golfcourse #mountains #rockymountainnationalpark #natgeo #nationalgeographic #forest #sunny #mountain #grandmesa #grandmesanationalforest #snow

The Giant Canyon Swing at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park-America’s only mountain-top theme park-was easily the scariest ride I’ve ever been on and I can’t believe my kid went on it with me. We soared over a cliff at 50 m/p/h to a nearly vertical height, 1,300 feet above the Colorado River. My throat is screaming-red raw.

The mesa rises about 6,000 feet above the surrounding river valleys, including the Grand Valley to the west, reaching an elevation of about 11,000 feet. Much of the mesa is within Grand Mesa National Forest with over 300 lakes and rivers. #battlementmesa #parachute #colorado #visitcolorado #travel #golf #paradise #sky #scenery #photography #wild #wilderness #golfcourse #mountains #rockymountainnationalpark #natgeo #nationalgeographic #forest #sunny #mountain #grandmesa #grandmesanationalforest

Post four of Independence Pass avalanche sites. Some of the avalanche sites crossed over the road and went up the other side of the valley. To witness this force of nature and to hear it would have been amazing! But it does bear in mind why they close this pass in the winter, to dangerous for human or beast! #independencepass #avalanche #colorado #coloradogram #5280 #rmtiiphotography #coloradosky50 #visitcolorado #coloradocameraclub #viewcolorado #jj_colorado #coloradotography #photographer #colorado_fame #onlyincolorado #outtherecolorado #coloradical #ig_addicts #theamericancollective #photography #colorfulcolorado #findyourcolorado #wildandco #coloradogrammers #openroadcolorado

Originally called Battlement Mesa Forest Reserve, created by Benjamin Harrison on December 24, 1892, it was the third forest reserve created in United States. It is the largest flat top mountain in the world. The forest covers most of Grand Mesa and the south part of Battlement Mesa. It has a total area of 346,555 acres. #battlementmesa #parachute #colorado #visitcolorado #travel #golf #paradise #sky #scenery #photography #wild #wilderness #golfcourse #mountains #rockymountainnationalpark #natgeo #nationalgeographic #forest #sunny #mountain #grandmesa #grandmesanationalforest

Post one, I made my yearly trek over Independence Pass. I try to do this right after they opened it up, but because I was out of town, had to wait a couple of weeks. Still lots of snow on the top, but what was more humbling was the 23+ avalanche areas I saw both on the east and west sides of the pass. The amount of force to rip up trees from the ground or to shatter four feet thick tree trunks is mind dumbing. This was amazing two hours to stop and see everything! #independencepass #avalanche #colorado #coloradogram #5280 #rmtiiphotography #coloradosky50 #visitcolorado #coloradocameraclub #viewcolorado #jj_colorado #coloradotography #photographer #colorado_fame #onlyincolorado #outtherecolorado #coloradical #ig_addicts #theamericancollective #photography #colorfulcolorado #findyourcolorado #wildandco #coloradogrammers #openroadcolorado

Wild Mustangs learning new things. You know I was terrified of horses before I met my now husband? My friend Will saddled me up on my first adventure almost 9 years ago, ice on the ground and at the tail of a 16 horse pack string deep in the wilderness. I survived. . Horses have healed my deepest sorrows and reminded me how to be present. I am fortunate to understand what it feels like to be scared of horses (Mardi Gras Cops on horses?! Real thing), it’s made learning to love them and let them love me a unique process. Thankful to have with these beautiful animals in my life and thankful my in-laws and husband have helped guide me to where I am today. From daily clinics, youth camps and yoga retreats I truly look forward to sharing this experience and so thankful for those that have trusted in us to provide. 🙏🏻🌞🥰 #proudtobeacowgirl #realranchlife

I remember driving through California and looking at the beautiful scenery...that had a smog like haze over it, no matter where I drove. Here in Colorado, I am about 50 miles away from #coloradosprings in South Park, and I see nothing but white clouds and blue skies! I love my home! #southpark #clouds #blueskies #colorado #coloradogram #5280 #rmtiiphotography #coloradosky50 #visitcolorado #coloradocameraclub #viewcolorado #jj_colorado #coloradotography #photographer #colorado_fame #onlyincolorado #outtherecolorado #coloradical #ig_addicts #theamericancollective #photography #colorfulcolorado #findyourcolorado #wildandco #coloradogrammers #openroadcolorado

Mountains or beach? I’m torn, I absolutely love both. Both bring me joy and peace. But if I have to choose snow or sand, hands down sand over snow! Which is your favorite place to retreat?

Beauty is rarely ever convenient. It’s rarely easy but worth all the while and worth taking the path less known. Trail Ridge Road- 12,183 feet of elevation. It’s one thing to witness a sunset, it’s another to see it at this elevation. We were simply taken back at the beauty of this sunset. Certainly one of those sunsets that would’ve been a 1 out 100 sunsets as far as it’s vibrancy. With the wind blowing at least 30mph. Trekking through snow as we set up our shots off road. It was really just us and this sunset there were there that evening. Simply an unforgettable one to witness. Thinking of this sunset makes me reflect. On the paths that I’ve taken, with the people that are in my life, and those who are no longer a part of my life. While it might have been myself and few others to see this moment, the people in my life were certainly there in a different way. Taken along @pingoraoutdoors photography tour.

‘Golden Shadow’ -Trail Ridge Road- The Rocky Mountains are notable for containing the highest peaks in central North America.. Or as most in CO call it, more climbable fourteeners then anywhere in the lower 48. The range's highest peak is Mount Elbert located (14,440 ft) above sea level, but plenty follower right behind it.. 🏔 #rockymountainnationalpark #fromwavestowilderness #visitcolorado
