    • Spring Wildflowers - In A Colorado Minute (Week ...

      --- http://MovingPostcard.com --- Most of the spring wildflowers seen in this video I filmed last week in Lory State Park, outside of Fort Collins, Colorado. A few of the images are from other times and places, including a venture across the border into Wyoming a few weeks ago and an overcast day at Horsetooth Reservoir in late April. I'm dedicating this video to my father, Günter Westphal, because he's such an amazing wildflower photographer, as you can see in "Günter Westphal Photo Exhibit –...

      --- http://MovingPostcard.com --- Technically, the Terry Bison Ranch is in Wyoming. But once you make a German girl's life-long dream come true and get on a horse to ride around the American prairie, you quickly end up in Colorado, where most of the ranch's grassland is located. On Erik's last day in Colorado before returning to Hamburg, Erik, Scott and I headed up to the border to Wyoming and visited the Terry Bison Ranch, which is a fully functioning (and the nation's 3rd largest) bison farm...

    • Spring Creek Trail (East), Fort Collins [Time La...

      --- http://MovingPostcard.com --- Fort Collins, Colorado, features five major biking, pedestrian and horseback riding trails: the Poudre, Spring Creek, Fossil Creek, Power and Mason Trail. These inviting trails make it a pleasure to cut from one end of town to the other - avoiding streets while enjoying the views of creeks, ponds, meadows, parks and wildlife. For this week's video, I rode a German-made vintage Sears bike (thank you, G.J.!) along the Spring Creek Trail from College Avenue headi...

    • Vedauwoo, Wyoming - In Another Minute (Week 210)

      --- http://MovingPostcard.com --- Vedauwoo is a very impressive park full of Sherman Granite rocks, piles of rocks and mountains of rocks in south-eastern Wyoming, between Cheyenne and Laramie - just a 1-hour drive north-west of Fort Collins, Colorado. The name Vedauwoo comes from the Arapaho language, who call this part of the world "Land of the Earthborn Spirit." Because this week is the 4-year anniversary of this weekly 1-minute web series, I wanted to do something special. So my best frien...

    • Los Cabos, Mexico - In Another Minute (Week 209)

      --- http://movingpostcard.com/los-cabos-mexico/ --- Los Cabos on the Baja California Peninsula in Mexico encompasses the towns Cabo San Lucas and San José del Cabo. For my birthday this week, Scott and I hid away there in an all-inclusive resort (Ziva Hyatt) on the Sea of Cortez for a 4-day birth day celebration. It was the first time we had ever stayed at an all-inclusive resort. Usually, I'm more the adventurous type. But let me tell you, this is really the way to go if you want to relax com...

    • Rocky Mountain National Park (Estes Park) - In A...

      --- http://MovingPostcard.com --- Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado is locally often referred to by the name Estes Park, due to the proximity of the town Estes Park to the National Park's entrance. From Fort Collins, the park is only a little over an hour away by car, and the drive via Highway 34 takes you along the Big Thompson river and rock walls that rival those of Poudre Canyon road (Highway 14). So it was an easy choice to take a little road trip with my friend Judith Hecktor, who...

      --- http://MovingPostcard.com --- (I’m currently exporting a slightly different version – will replace this one in about 30 minutes) This week, Scott and I went skiing for the first time ever. What happens when you take a grown woman from the flat lands of Hamburg, Germany, up to the Loveland Ski Area (http://www.skiloveland.com) in Colorado and put her on skis for the first time? She has a blast, falls a few times and realizes that it's really the ski lift that is the most intimidating aspect...

      --- http://MovingPostcard.com --- Spring has finally fully arrived in Northern Colorado, and I took the opportunity to explore the upper level of Lory State Park. I had already filmed the lower part back in January: Lory State Park (Part 1) – In A Colorado Minute (Week 195). For this excursion, I chose the most Southern trail - to Arthur's Rock. I was immediately rewarded with beautiful rock-covered, tree-lined, steep trails and beautiful vistas of Horsetooth Reservoir. At this time of year yo...

      --- http://MovingPostcard.com --- This video shows a selection of photos I shot with my iPhone 5 and (mostly) published via Instagram (http://Instagram.com/LuciWest), the social photography app. The oldest picture in this collection was taken in September 2013, the newest I took this week (March/April 2014) when my dear friend Erica Stoltz (of Dirty Excuse and Lost Goat) came for a visit from Brooklyn. Besides Erica, you also get to see Scott and Whiskey in this video. Most of the pictures are...

      --- http://MovingPostcard.com --- The Arkansas River actually begins its journey in Colorado, where its waters are derived from the Rocky Mountains snowpack. A good section around the early part, or headwaters, of the Arkansas River have been designated as a Colorado State Park called Arkansas Headwaters State Park. Conveniently, because I purchased a year-pass for Lory State Park near Fort Collins, we're able to get in for free at all 42 Colorado State Parks. So on our drive back from a road ...
