Living the Dream by Phyllis Bairrington

Phyllis Bairrington For many years, my family vacationed in the most remote region in Colorado. After retirement, I moved to Colorado.

Photography began as a way to show my family back in Texas, the beautiful scenery and wildlife.

From the flat land rice fields and pine forests of southeast Texas, to an altitude of 8,671’, the mountainsides, valleys, and gulches around Lake City offer the photographer not only the white-tail deer of home, but mule deer, moose, elk, rams, coyotes, foxes, marmots, black bear, and more. Lake City is a tiny community of less than 400 permanent year-round residents. During the summer tourist season, 1,000’s of people come from all over the US to enjoy outdoor activities.
