Welcome to Colorado Springs Daily Photo!

Hi, I'm Tamera, a professional wedding, portrait and boudoir photographer in Colorado Springs. But this blog isn't about my professional work; no, it's a daily love note to my beautiful city, where I've lived for most of my life. I love it here and I hope you enjoy seeing Colorado Springs through my eyes and lens!

The Riverwalk in Pueblo (Part 1)

Pat and I drove down to Pueblo on a whim yesterday and spent an hour or two exploring the Riverwalk. Since it was Easter, we thought it would be overrun with families enjoying the holiday, but we were pleasantly surprised to find it almost deserted. I'll share a few pictures today and a few more tomorrow. Enjoy!
Pueblo is only 30 minutes south of us but sits at 4,692 feet above sea level, an altitude drop of more than 1,300 feet from Colorado Springs, thus spring comes a little earlier there. The eastern redbud is already in full bloom in Pueblo.
You can go for a gondola ride at the Riverwalk! Fun!
My best guess is that this must have been a hotel when it was first built, probably over 100 years ago. Being fireproof was a big selling point in those days. Can you imagine?!?
There are also paddle boats on the Riverwalk. This would be fun to try someday.  Tomorrow, more pictures from our afternoon in Pueblo!
