I made it to Denver yesterday. Jeroen, the writer, didn’t. His flight was cancelled so he’ll arrive two days later. I spent most of the day arranging stuff like getting the car, a phone and maps. In the afternoon I drove to Wiggins 1hr and 15 mins north east of Denver. I saw the area from the plane when I arrived. From the sky it looked spectacular!
The South Platte River meanders through a dry landscape dotted with circular fields that it supplies with water. From ground level the circular shape of the fields is hardly visible. But I encountered some great scenes anyway.


Thunderstorms are gathering over the countryside in Colorado. Farmers continue the watering of heir fields.

I hope I’ll be able to come back here to do some aerial photos as well. We won’t have time for that on this trip I’m afraid. But you never know when I’ll be back.
