Friday Field Trip - American Eagle Overlook

First, you can still have a chance to win a copy of FINDING SARAH -- just scroll to yesterday's post and leave a comment. Winner announced on Sunday. And I'm still looking for 500 followers on Google Connect and 250 'likes'.

In addition to high tea, our guests enjoy (make that REALLY enjoy) hiking. One of our excursions began at the American Eagle min overlook, near Victor, Coloardo.

Today it's mining stuff. I'll have vistas another time. (click to enlarge)

Love the pictures, Terry!
Will you do a Western romance now that you live in CO? My husband loves the West and wishes we could live out there.

Terry Odell said...

Jacqueline - I already have. It's Danger in Deer Ridge, part of my Blackthorne, Inc. series. (Although it's not a cowboy western, it's set right here where I live.)

Very interesting photos

Maryann Miller said...

Really enjoy your Firday Field Trips. Love the pictures here of the old buildings. There is something so intriguing about the weathered wood. I always wonder what stories those old planks could tell.

Sounds and looks like a fun place to visit. Thanks for the virtual trip.

Mom - thanks.

Maryann - Glad you enjoy them. Why not send me something to use?

Mason - it's a rather out of the way place, and you have to go through a working gold mine field, and security is in place, but they do allow "regular" people to the overlook. But you have to stay on the right road!

Tom - I used a Nikon Coolpix. Point and Shoot. If our son had been there, you would have seen some GREAT pictures!

Tom said...

I thought they looked pretty "great" and pretty and great.

Terry Odell said...

Thank YOU, Tom. I guess it's kind of like writing--you're never totally satisfied, and you know you could make things better.

These are terrific pictures of old buildings and machinery; there is so much character revealed in their structure. I just spent 2 weeks in Wisconsin and took several photographs of similar scenes.

Gail -- 'old stuff' lends itself to photography. We have some great run-down homesteads. It's just a matter of risking life and limb to get someplace suitable for taking pictures. Narrow roads, no pull-outs.
