Colorado is lucky enough to have all four seasons.

And I was lucky enough to follow wildlife photographer Molly McCormick through those distinct seasons, capturing so many of Colorado's creatures along the way. We did it a spitting distance from Denver.

"My heart just feels like I belong here," McCormick said on the first day of winter, as we scanned Barr Lake for eagles.

The eagles at Barr Lake were shy. The mountain goats and bighorn sheep on Mount Evans were not, during our trek there this summer.

We saw bison in the spring at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge, and in fall, elk bugling at Rocky Mountain National Park. 

Some of McCormick's proudest accomplishments are being featured in National Geographic, the Remembering Wildlife Book Series, and working with the Tanzanian Children's Fund.

Follow McCormick on Instagram and Facebook to track her adventures both close to home and overseas. It is one of the best ways to procrastinate at work.
