Two photographs Shot August 19th, 2008 of Saucer Shaped Craft at Beaver Lake in Avon, Colorado

While recently on vacation in Vail, Colorado for five days with my girlfriend, we decided to go horseback riding at Beaver Creek, Colorado. There was a total of six of us horseback riding in the area of Beaver Lake located in Avon, Colorado on August 19th, 2008.

There were five guests and one guide who left the Beaver Creek Stables at approximately 09:45 hours and rode up to Beaver Lake. We arrived around 11:30 hours and I shot some photographs of the horses as they were tied up to a post. After eating a box lunch and fishing for trout in the Beaver Lake, we mounted up and started headed back down the mountain to the stables around 13:15 hours. The skies were bright blue and sunny. The ride was uneventful with nothing out of the ordinary seen or heard.

Upon returning home and reviewing the digital photographs, I found two photographs that show a very distinct disk or saucer shaped object just above one of the mountains. The images were taken with a Nikon D80 high-resolution camera. The first image that captured the saucer shaped object was at approximately 11:38 hours (7023) and the second photograph to capture the saucer shaped object was at approximately 13:30 hours (7094).
