Golden Hour

Blue Skies

So I wanted to see blue sky (air conditions are horrible right now in front range) and some new place where I have never been before. Chasm Lake in the RMNP was calling my name… I got to see blue sky in early hours this morning and it was nice under 50F temps too.

First photo is view of Longs Peak on the way to Chasm Lake.
Second photo is sunrise with all that ugly smoke in the air.

Summer solstice sunset at 12100 feet high

We decided to see sunset on the longest day of the year from the closest highest driving spot, so quick drive to the Trail Ridge Road in RMNP was in order. It was cold, windy and by the time we were leaving, we were covered in the white fast moving cloud… at 12100 feet high elevation weather turns on a dime!

Not disappointing sunset. Don’t you think?

Summer Time in RMNP

I took this photo 5 years ago on one of the short hikes off Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park. We are planning to get fairly early tomorrow and escape another hot day here in Boulder by going to the same place, while it still have plenty of snow.

Would it look the same?

Late Spring in Colorado

Lakes are melting, but still plenty of ice, deep under water and on top of it.
