COLORADO

In my travels with baseball's Pittsburgh Pirates since 1987, I had visited all the National League cities.

But the KDKA-TV traveling team had a new destination in 1993.  The Colorado Rockies had joined the league.

Below, at Mile High Stadium in Denver, you see the members of our band.  I'm on the left, with audio engineer Bill Schnack, director Brad Risch, and producer Bill Shissler on the right.

We didn't televise every game the Pirates played in Denver, so there were some free days.  We headed to the mountains to play tourist.

Bill brought his camera.  Here are 12 of his photographs.

(To explain the first one:  Bill took two shots of this precariously balanced rock in the Garden of the Gods, and I couldn't resist combining them into a 3D stereoscopic view.)


Any pictures labeled 3D are stereoscopic anaglyphs, using the system that you may have seen in a couple of Sports Illustrated issues in 2000.  For the three-dimensional effect, view them with a red filter over your left eye and a cyan (blue-green) filter over your right eye.

The next five pictures were taken at Montgomery Reservoir south of Breckenridge (39°21'23"N, 106°04'23"W).
