Elevate Day Spa

Tips for the perfect spray tan:
*exfoliate the entire body focusing on dry spots
* don’t apply any makeup or lotions to the skin
* wear loose clothing

*don’t shower for at least 5 hours OR even better wear the solution over night
*avoid exercise, water and sweating right after application
*keep the skin heavily moisturized and avoid excess bathing.
*avoid all skin care products with exfoliating benefits
*don’t get a sun burn! You can tan naturally over the solution but if your skin starts to peel you will be two toned.

Special through April 15th – spray tan with extender for $30

The Alpha

wolf pack fight


Cowboy with a Camera

This image here is a capture of captive gray(timber) wolves in Parc Omega. It is amazing to watch these beautiful animals display their pack hierarchy. This image was captured during the wolves breading period so the alpha male must make sure he maintaining the dominant role in the pack. Sometimes it is just a walk past, showing dominance with his body language or facial gestures but sometimes he must do more. These interactions are usually extremely fast because usually the less dominant wolf will usually back down. Then it is back to being a pack and working together, what amazing animals!  Thanks for viewing and feel free to share.

If you are interested in prints of any images that I have taken feel free to check out my website or send me an email at

Original Ore Tram Car From Sutton Mill at Bear Creeks Falls Circa 1926

Across Bear Creek Falls are the remains of Sutton Mill. It was built by Jim and Bill Slick in 1926 and had a 100-ton capacity. The mill was mostly destroyed by fire in 1892. The mine itself is across the canyon at an altitude of 10,595 feet and was connected to the mill by a 2,700-foot aerial tramway. Other access to the mine was from Mineral Farm off the Camp Bird Road. The mine had four working levels with most work done in teh 1920’s out of the Barber Tunnel, which was the one connected to the mill. The mine produced pyrite, lead, copper, silver and some gold and has been worked off and on by several groups.


Wildlife in Ouray

Wildlife in Ouray includes chipmunks (they will eat out of your hand at Box Canyon Park), marmots or “whistle pigs” (they look like large groundhogs), ptarmigan, squirrels, beaver, skunks, porcupines, rabbits, bobcats, deer, elk and mountain sheep. Less frequently seen are black bear, mountain lions, wolves and coyotes. Deer and elk are seen mostly in early morning and at dusk. In the  summer they inhabit the high grassy meadows, but as winter approaches the herds move to lower elevations. They can commonly be seen alongside (and sometimes in) the road during the winter.
