Fresh snow day in the front range (just a few days back). A nice spot to see both Boulder and Longs Peak. You would think that Longs Peak is just seating above Boulder, but you can’t see it from Boulder… as soon as you go down into the valley, those front range hills block it entirely.
It is almost winter here. Tomorrow high 32F. But, but… summer was just here, those nice hot days, even in alpine country, with all those beautiful flowers.
Bonus point, what are the two, yes two, fourteeners can you name in this photo?
Last photo showed sunset shadow at the 3rd highest mountain in Colorado. Following up today with another shadow, but this time it is sunrise shadow. Some of you might know where it is, by recognizing this landscape…
Well, it was taken from the summit of Uncompahgre Peak, in beautiful San Juan Mountains.
One of the cool effects that you can only witness while standing on the top of the high mountain during sunrise or sunset… watching the shadow of the mountain. The higher the mountain, the better visual you get.
This is sunset at the 3rd highest mountain in Colorado – Mt Harvard.
