colorado

Stumbled upon some great art by accident in Colorado. While visiting and drinking from the magical springs of Manitou Springs, we walked by the gallery of Terry Miller.

It was dark but we could hear the water rushing and knew the river from snow melt was at the dunes and I was so excited to go back the next morning. We also saw Elk while driving out there at night! They are huge and a...
