The Strawberry Mountain Wilderness is located east of John Day, Oregon, in the Malheur National Forest. The area includes approximately 68,700 acres. The entire northern section of the mountain was burned in a large fire in 2002, which is why the trees halfway up the mountain look dead and bare. I was driving through here in the beginning of April, and stopped to take a few photos along the way.
Driving on Highway 285 South from Santa Fe to Roswell, New Mexico, I had to stop as the sky was putting up a show for me. The yellow desert grass was lit up by the evening sun, and created a perfect rainbow under that rain storm on the horizon. It was a spectacular evening that day.

This is Hamlins Hill Mutukaroa, a regional park right in the middle of the city. It was tough to get a decent shot with factories and office buildings in the background, but I think this kinda looks okay. (And yes the grass really was that colour)
This was a quick shot i took in my backyard using my Nikon D60. I corrected the colors a good bit in photoshop.I apologize for some slight noise due to a higher ISO. ISO 400, f/5.6, 1/13s, 18-55mm at 55mm.
This park is located in Thornton, Colorado and is definitely one of the coolest parks I've been to. The view is amazing, it completely surrounds you, looking also out towards Denver and DIA. To me, this photo captures the essence of Colorado in the Summer - green grass, blue sky, sunshine, and peace.
