This road to the top of Mt. Evans only opens after Memorial Day. Up at this height the road is not maintained during most of the year. It’s an awesome drive, not for the faint of heart!
Seldom do I post photos from the properties I offer for sale, but this one is an exception. I shot this today after looking at dull gray skies for several days. What a delight to find my favorite white puffy clouds against the bright blue skies had returned right at the exact moment I needed to take this shot!
I’ll consider my stoke of luck a good omen…anyone want to buy a DTC Condo?
Atop Mt. Evans lives a herd of Mountain Goats. They are amazing to watch as they effortlessly climb up and down the side of the mountain.
I captured this image today on my way up Mt. Evans! It’s one of those “lucky shots” where I had 1 second to get it!
I just love the way nothing but the clouds show behind the car. It was truly a trip to the sky!
Living in Colorado brings with it many special side benefits. One is the ability to hop in the car and in a short time be above the clouds! This photo of the Yampa Valley was taken from the top of the gondola at Steamboat.
OK so my title is less than exciting, but at least the photo lends some drama. I went looking for a nice sunset behind the Rocky Mountains, but thanks to the heavy overcast, it never happened.
Instead a cloud formation over Denver intrigued me. I shot it instead.
Now I think I even like this one better!
Watching the clouds is a favorite past time in the west. The weather can be seen approaching miles away, it rolls in and out providing an entertainment of a sorts.
Vistas like this a common sights in Colorado, particularly along the Front Range. On a clear day, we can see for 100 miles or more. Climb to a high vista like this one, located just above the town of Castle Rock and one can watch cloud formations come and go.
It’s nature’s stage, one I never tire of watching.
I often have people tell me they want a house with a “view.” There are many kinds of views. There are mountain views, tree views, urban views, sweeping views, sky views, long views, short views, golf course views. Heck there are even views of Kansas!
Typically in Colorado when I’m asked for a home with a view, I know exactly what they are wanting.
I call it a “knock your socks off view.” How do you describe a view?
