This stretch of road visible here was pretty tame. The sign describes it more accurately as a winding road, steep drop offs with narrow shoulders. No guard rails. Guard rails are for sissies.
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.
Funny, I got an email the other day from a gentleman in the UK. He wanted to interview me on the state of real estate in ski towns.
I silently smiled and referred him to a friend of mine, Trish Giassa who actually lives and sells real estate in Crested Butte, a REAL ski town.
So many people have the impression that Denver is IN the mountains. It really isn’t.
But then I took this photo while standing on the Millennium Bridge in Riverfront Park. I’ll be darned, it does look like Denver is in the mountains!
Up on Conifer mountain there is a fox family who come to visit. They trot up on the deck and watch us as we socialize. They won’t let us approach them, but they love to hang around.
No complaints here, I couldn’t have asked for a better pose!
In the hills above Denver, in a town called Conifer, one can see very far away on a clear day. Of course most of our days are clear. This morning I was rewarded with low lying clouds that looked like snow.
Colorado is grand.
Denver is so close to the mountains, that it only take s a few minutes drive before one can view majestic mountain peaks.
Fall color is painting the slopes, soon to be replaced with a dusting of snow. A preview of what is soon to come.
