The Best Photogenic Stuff in Colorado (I have never lived there, but visited several times, and studied it much)
Hikes - Sky Pond, Glacier Gorge, Emerald and Dream Lakes, Chasm Lake, climb Long's Peak if you can, Wild Basin area hikes... For drive up, Trail ridge Road, Spragues Lake, Bear Lake, Moraine Meadow, Beaver Meadows...
Red Rock and GOTG are pretty similar and rather touristy, but quite beautiful
Rocky Mountain Arsenal has a lot of diverse animals...
Maroon Bells, Crystal Mill, The Dallas Divide (overlooking Mount Sneffels), The Chicago Basin, Pierre Lakes
Great Sand Dunes National Park, Como Lake, Mount Blanca
Google Colorado landscape and wildlife pictures, find ones you like, find out where they were taken, and:
CAREFULLY determine what time of day to be there. Chasm, for example, will be great at sunrise, but pointless at sunset (unless overcast). Also, nearly every afternoon, there will be a thunderstorm.
Visit 14ers.com for more information, also, be careful of high altitude issues.
