Getting ready for summer season in Colorado high country. This is view of Handies Peak from Uncompahgre Peak. One 14er to another 14er. Bird can fly it in matter of some minutes… It takes hours to get from the place I was standing to the other peak, using roads and trails.
A few people commented on these photos, that they resemble Ukrainian flag. I guess right now anything yellow with blue would look like it, perhaps in some abstract way. If these peaceful views of some of the highest places in the world can bring peace to Ukraine, I’m happy that it looks like it and perhaps brings some comfort.
Redcloud and Sunshine Peaks as they were seen a few minutes before sunrise from the Handies Peak. Beautiful Colorado 14ers.
Mount Sneffels is 14,158ft high, one of the class 3 14ers in Colorado. I have yet to get to the summit of this one. Perhaps next year.
The first photo was taken this October at sunrise. Second photo was taken almost exactly the same day last year at sunset time. Very different.
Taken from Handies Peak, yet another Colorado 14er, which I climbed twice now and might do it again next time in the San Juan Mountains.
