  1. Beautiful shot, Scott. At least the cloud isn’t dumping more snow. I think you’ll be seeing more green soon, at least at the lower elevations.

    • Thank you, Gunta…and yes, at least it wasn’t dumping more snow…I think it did come back, though…and is currently raining on the mountain…but that’s OK, too…..

  2. This is a nice shot, but I want to see where you went this weekend! 🙂

    • Thanks, George…my older son and I actually went back up to Grandeur Peak this weekend…but it wasn’t nearly as pretty as it was last Sunday…much of the snow had melted and the trails were rather muddy…no buds on the branches yet…still sleeping soundly in their winter…..still waiting for the greening of Spring to hit the mountain slopes….

  4. That looks an impressive mountain, dusted with snow. A traverse of that would be a cool undertaking.

    • It is rather impressive, Andy…I’ve not seen or heard of people crossing the face of it, but I know that plenty of folks have made it to the top by various means…I hope to add my name to that list later this year….

      • I was thinking of up left skyline and down the right, or vice versa rather than a girdle traverse.

        • That would be “easier,” but still very challenging. There’s another route a bit to the right of this image that actually takes one up to another summit that is just south of this northern face…it’s actually a little higher than this one. My son and I made it to the bottom of the final scramble to the top…about 500 ft shy of it…the hand-holds were still filled with ice and it was feeling rather treacherous….

  5. Whoever named these places sure had an active imagination!

    • Yes, they did, Allen…I believe I read somewhere that the leader of the pioneers who helped settle this area actually named this one….

  6. It still looks pretty cold up there. I hope your turnaround to spring will come soon!

    • Yep, it would be rather chilly, although, the bright sun on such a day would certainly help you stay warm…and thanks, Gary…I’m hoping for the same. 🙂

  8. Beautiful and very engaging…

    • Thanks, Charlie…another one of those views that cause me to slow down a bit when driving past…..

  9. Very pretty shot, Scott!

    • Thank you, Terry…it’s another beautiful spot on our horizon here in the valley.

  10. Such a lovely 3D image, Scott, I feel that I could almost reach in with my hand and waft away those clouds.

    • Thank you, John…and I don’t know how it happened that way…in 3D, but it sure does have that appearance….

  11. This looks hyper realistic! The details are quite incredible. What a view!

    • Just pulled-over to the side of the freeway…zoomed in a little bit to get above the neighborhood…and there it is…yes, quite a view. 🙂
