Tonight on the way home, I was thinking how much I love the longer days and wondered if I’d see a sunset. The view as I reach the top of the steep road home is often noteworthy. The paved road ends and the majority of the last two miles is downhill. Today I pulled over to take these photos. Unfiltered, you can see the snow on the peaks in the distance as the sun illuminates the clouds. Perfect timing.
I remember a John Belushi fish-out-of-water movie from the 1980s named Continental Divide. It may have been my first exposure to the beauty that is Colorado.
This exquisite view, snow capped peaks above tree line is something I appreciate every time I see it.
Clouds dance cheek to cheek
with the continental divide
Creating vibrant views
best enjoyed from the top
of the mountain.
Long ski runs
surrounded by pines
with gentle whooshing sounds
glistening in the afternoon sun.
