This hidden retention basin is way out the end of Tropical Avenue on the west side. Last time I was here at least four years ago, some assholes were shooting pistols and God knows whatever else. I turned around and headed downhill! Anyway, there were just two cars up there this time so I felt comfortable getting some photos. There are several basins of various sizes around the valley, many are much larger than this one.
It’s kind of funny the things you can see if you really pay attention to your surroundings. This odd image was taken today at the Lone Mountain Park right near the kiddy playground as you can tell. Apparently someone really dislikes our stupid post service. Me too. Our government has a heriditary mental disorder! 💀
Today I went back to Lone Mountain Park hoping to get some horse photos but the horses had other ideas. They convinced the owners to stay home or rode elsewhere I guess so I started pointing the camera elsewhere. I uploaded this one by itself as it’s the best photo I’ve taken to date of people on top of Lone Mountain. I used the 70-300mm lens of course to get a shot that high up. There’s a cross up there too, never saw that before. I tried to climb the mountain in 2014 I think but my heart just wasn’t up to the task. Sucks!
