remote colorado: paint mines interpretive park
the paint mines were on my list for a while. from a designer's eye, the color palette this place boasts is mind-boggling. i've been increasingly using nature to catalog colors in my mind, and photographing them to make sure i remember how vivid they were. just over an hour from denver, paint mines is the perfect spot to get lost in for the afternoon after a trip to fort collins. it's a manageable 750 acres and not very populated - the rock formations and array of plant life there are worth getting your eyes on.
