The idea of taking photos with three different cameras at 12,800 feet was the thing that motivated me to make the hike, but nothing, not digital, not 35 mm, not medium format, captured the colors that day. Sometimes you just have to remember.

There was supposed to be a waterfall, but there wasn't. I was just as happy with this.

I have over a hundred photos from the Colorado trip printed now. They are stacked around my apartment, big lovely piles of 6x6 matte magic, all white-bordered and pale. Pale because 400 was really not the right film for bright high-altitude Creede. Neither was 200, but I didn't have the 100 that Pam recommended, and neither did the Gift 'N Gas, which was where I was greedily buying roll after new roll by the end of the week.

When they're all in their stacks like that, it's easy to get overwhelmed by them. I took so many of the aspens, the views from the hike that took us to 12,800 feet, the barn, the barn, the barn, the dogs. Which one to choose? And some of them are best together in a series, kind of flat and bland when looked at one their own.

This one though, keeps jumping off the table at me. I love it.

I wish it wasn't the damage caused by pine beetles that I'll remember from this hike, but that is one of the things, for sure.

There was a critter in the wall and deer just outside the back window. Every night Kae built us a fire in the woodstove. Sometimes the cabin filled with smoke, sometimes it didn't. Tricky flue, and insufficient kindling. Even so, the cabin was aptly named.

It wasn't up to us whether there was a baby face in the photo or not. They are completely pre-should humans.

The apartment building is where the people who might have seen us drinking live.
