Kind of fun reading the comments on my back yard! The locations listed are the normal tourist locations, where you will find the most visible tripod tracks. My advice would be to get off the beaten path and see the beauty of Colorado's high country. Salida, Marshall Pass, Monarch Pass, Tomichi Pass, Hancock Pass, Williams Pass, Altman Pass, Tincup Pass, Cumberland
Pass. See the tiny town of Como and the old South Park engine house, then travel over Boreas pass to the ski areas around Breckenridge. Go West on I 70 through Glenwood Canyon and swim in the hot springs. The Maroon Bells
are a bit South and West of Glenwood, and will display the largest group of "Tri Pod" tracks I have ever seen in one place. WH Jackson, LC McLure, were among the first to visit this area. If you like to hike, The Mt Of The Holy Cross is outstanding. Jackson visited there in 1873 and shortly after by Thomas Moran who in 1875 painted his master piece "The Mount Of the Holy Cross" Then exhibited it to the world in 1876. With a hand camera ride the Durango & Silverton narrow gauge railroad, be on the right side for shots of the Rockwood ledge and Animas River and the Engine snaking around curves
in front of you. Buena Vista, Cottonwood Pass, Independence Pass, Leadville, Mosquito Pass, Fairplay all have fantastic vistas. Travel up Chalk Creek on the old Denver South Park and Pacific railroad grade to St. Elmo, then on up grade to the former mining railroad town of Hancock. A three mile hike will take you to the east portal of the Alpine Tunnel. Another 45 minute hike over Altman Pass will put you at the East portal of the Alpine Tunnel. These few locations I have mentioned are taken from thousands of fantastic "Photo opps" available here in Colorado. Come on down to Canon City and ride the train through the Royal Gorge, then go over to the Gunnison country and take the boat ride through the "The Black Canyon of the Gunnison. From there you can head for lake City, Slumgullion Pass, Cinnamon Pass, Animas Forks and Engineers Mountain ( Pass). Nuff suggestions for now, but there truly are many many scenic wonders "in my back yard" for a "picture maker" to aim his boxes at. Bring all the film you think you will need, then double that amount..........Take Care, Charlie
