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!

Cheyenne Mountain view

The best view from the Cheyenne Mountain Resort (see yesterday's post) is mainly of, you guessed it, Cheyenne Mountain itself. In fact, from here you can't really see Pikes Peak at all, but Cheyenne Mountain sure looks good! I do a lot of weddings at this venue, but it's rare that I get a chance to enjoy it as a "civilian", as we did on Christmas.

You probably already know that Cheyenne Mountain is where NORAD is located. It's an entire military base inside a mountain! I've been in there one time, long ago, to take a tour. I don't think they actually offer tours to the public, but my mom was able to get us in at the time because she had friends in high places, as they say. Later, after he retired from the Air Force, my dad worked at NORAD for several years as a civil servant.

Lately I've been binge-watching the '90s era sci-fi TV series "Stargate SG1", much of which takes place inside NORAD. It's pretty fun to see them using footage over and over of the actual road that leads into the mountain. It still looks the same!
