Buena Vista, Colorado

Updated March 2010: These photos were from a visit in 2004 when I lived in Manitou Springs (and before I moved to Buena Vista in October 2005). Below are the original photos and captions. -Steve

Mt. Yale and Mt. Columbia.
I didn't take many pictures inside the town of Buena Vista, except for this old building in downtown.
Barbara Whipple Trail I went on a short hike, the Barbara Whipple Trail on the eastern end of the town.
That's the Arkansas River as a young toddler. (Picture quality is poor.)
Mt. Princeton The terrain is fairly desert-like, with lots of rocks and spikey plants like this yucca.
Chaffee County Road 304 is actually the old railroad grade for the Colorado & Midland Railroad. An old photo of Midland Tresle, which no longer stands, but is in the vicinity.
Most of the eye-catching views are to the west, but the east has some interesting mountains & rock structures as well.
