    woh, sounds exciting. Thanks for the inform. Will try the snowmobile ride.

    Another thing is how to keep the camera battery warm. Battery will fail under the low temperature.

    Hi Jack,

    There isn't much in Loveland itself but there is plenty around the area for photography. I've made several trips to Greeley which is a short drive away from LoveLand.

    Colorado has much history on gold mining & Native American Indian.
    Autumn is a fantastic time to take the beautiful yellow/red leaves of the Aspen trees.
    In general, the drive to any of the locations are fantastic places for photography.
    I'd say just bring along a graduated ND filter, ND8 filter & circular polariser.

    Here are some examples I've been to & thought you might be interested:

    Hermit Park : The Great Thomson River runs through the region. Not much white water at this time of the year but its still a nice location. You can find free roaming Elk & moose (don't go too near the moose cos they can get quite aggressive). Look for holes in the rocks where native American Indians use to sharpen their spears

    Colorado Summit : Drive to Lake Dillon. Beautiful lake with backdrop of snow capped mountains behind.

    Loveland Pass : There is a sign at the top (at 11,990 feet) that shows the continental divide. Melting snow from one side of the mountain flows to the Atlantic Ocean. And Snow from the other side of the mountain flows to the Pacific Ocean.

    Rocky Mountain National Park : Take a hike to Grand Lake. It should be beautiful at this time of the year. You can take the hike right to the waterfalls but don't expect much flowing water as the impresseive water falls appear around spring season.

    Cave of the Winds at Leadville : You can get nice shots of the old mining town, the mines & equipment

    Garden of the Gods : Beautiful rock structures. Best during sunrise or sunsets.

    Ski slopes : There are many along Interstate 70. Vail, Silverstone, Brekenridge, Keystone. Most are quite similar, so just pick one. If you dare, drive to Aspen & spend the night there. Its the ski resort of the rich & famous.

    Steamboat Springs : Its a long drive from Loveland. You can get unique shots of the hot sulpher springs (damn smelly). Its a nice place to visit but not so much for photography in the town itself.

    Wyoming : Its a short drive up North from Loveland. There is a buffalo farm very close to the boarder. You can get very nice shots of the buffalos. The shuttle bus will take you right into the pen of the buffalos , so you won't need a long range lens.

    You'll be there during the Halloween season. Do try to join your counterparts for a pumpkin carving get together. Its great fun & a good chance for nice pictures.

    You have my email. Let me know if you need more information.
