Mt. Flora from Berthoud Pass at Sunrise 4

Grand County, Colorado

From high atop Mines Peak on Berthoud Pass and just up the winding road from Winter Park, this Colorado mountain landscape looks across towards the eastern slopes of Mt. Flora at sunrise. I had planned on hiking some of the Continental Divide Trail on this morning, but with winds easily in excess of 50mph and gusts much stronger, my tripod was not able to stand on its own - even weighted down with my backpack. So I captures a few colorful sunrise images as best I could and lived to hike another day. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
