The soft warm glow of an Afternoon Aspen grove in Autumn is An Absolutely Exceptional Experience. Seriously, though, it is pretty perfect. The vibrant yellow and orange leaves counter the deep blue skies. The endless rows of straight white trunks painted with black invite the contemplation of infinity. Warm sunshine and cool mountain air. The soft rustle of leaves your background music and working soundtrack. Southwest Colorado in September. Absolutely Amazing. Ok. I’m done now.
Ever wondered what it would be like if your home town never changed? You’ll find out. Our home base of Ouray, is a charming town affectionately known as the Switzerland of America. This delightful Victorian town looks as if it never grew out of the 1880’s. The mining history in and outside of town is rich and tangible. The beautiful wooden mills, narrow gauge trains and old equipment left behind by 19th century gold rush, provide a picture-perfect accent to the rugged mountains.
Nestled in a tight valley that sits at an elevation 7,792 feet, Ouray is the perfect base of operations. On several days we’ll ditch our cars and hop into open air 4wd vehicles, letting the professional drivers chauffer us up the narrow mountain roads. Through dense groves of Aspen to the dizzying heights of California pass we’ll be treated to some of the most awesome mountain scenery in the lower 48. Don’t worry, if you’re afraid of heights, we’ll put you in the inside seat.
We get asked all the time what gear we recommend, so we took it upon ourselves to help you out and make a handy dandy list of EVERYTHING we’ve got and love. From what’s in our bag, to our tripod recommendations, to our lighting equipment and everything in between. You never know, we just might help you justify that next purchase. And because we both love gear so much, we’re ok with that.
