Oh my, it was a gorgeous day passing through the Colorado Rockies. The entire drive is spectacular - I think I stopped at 90% of the scenic outlooks! Thrilling. Here's one photo I took, I believe its of Independence Pass… now doesn't that seem appropriate somehow?
I mean really, my jaw was dropping all day…
I mean after hours and hours of this yesterday through Kansas (i didn't even bother photoshopping out the bug smear on the windshield!):
To come upon the one above and this:
Theo and I are now comfortably set up in our campsite along the Colorado River. We are surrounded by reddish-color cliffs with green bushes. There are big-horned sheep in those hills! I saw them! The light was not right tonight to capture the color, but here's an idea of it…I'll try again in the morning.
