Conference and holiday in Colorado
On Saturday 18th October 2008, I went to Colorado for a software conference, where I gave a few talks.
Colorado Software Summit if you're interested - sadly 2008 was the last of these excellent conferences.
I managed to get a couple of extra weeks of holiday after the conference, and did a little bit of mountain walking, along with a trip to Arizona to see the sights, even skipping briefly into Utah.
Keystone, North side of the valley - Sunday 26th October
I decided to have a very lazy day on Sunday.
The sun was very strong, so I walked a little way up the North side of the valley, and found a large rock on which to do a little bit of sunbathing.
While sunbathing, I saw a few birds.
This one was too far away to get a decent photo, but it's obviously a bird of prey of some kind.
Then I wandered up a bit further through the woods, and saw a woodpecker of some kind - perhaps a yellow-bellied sap sucker.
Back at the lake, I waited for the sunset.
