Continental Divide

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.

A beautiful trail and an energetic puppy

Views of the Continental Divide in the distance, vibrant wildflowers on either side of the trail, and Charlie enjoying the freedom to run and expend his endless energy. A great way to spend the morning.

Life above the clouds

Life the Rocky Mountains can be magnificent and ever changing. Weather is isolated creating a 15 degree temperature difference between where I live at 8200 ft and Boulder 5300 ft less than 10 miles away most days. Sometimes, on the steep drive, as I twist and turn along Magnolia Rd, it is otherworldly.

These images were captured at a lookout point above Boulder Valley where the clouds gently rested leaving the sunshine for those of us above 8000 ft.
