Plains And Mountains

I like to get up early and watch the sunrise. There are many great places to catch it coming up over the horizon and splattering these foothills with golden light. This perch is a favorite because there is so little trace of development and human impact. This scene is not much different that how it looked 300 years ago, except now there are more trees.

This image was taken south of Boulder looking back towards the west. The snow covered mountains to the left are the Indian Peaks. This is the farthest eastern swing of the continental divide and they form the western edge of Boulder County. The white peak to the right side is 14,255' Longs Peak. It is the centerpiece of Rocky Mountain National Park and inside the northwestern corner of Boulder County. There are 54 fourteen thousand foot tall peaks in Colorado, this one is ours.
