February 18th, 2024

  The Sun Rises Over A Section of Tall Grass Prairie, lighting Longs Peak, the front range, and the Continental Divide South of Longs Peak. As the sun rises the landscape nearest still shows the sunrise red, while the objects in the distance that have had sun for longer are losing the red Colorado.

This is an example of a “beautiful Boulder Sunset!”  Read More

We’re mile-high, with the 5280 topo line going through our back yard, right where our Buddha stands. The top of Longs, which is a LONG walk for some, and a three hour jog for others is a high point in the lives of anyone who has seen it from the bottom, made it to the top, or who have looked at it and admired it over decades. It really does never look the same.   Longs Peak from Peak to Peak... Read More
