Looking Out and Over the Divide

There's something about Colorado.  It's the mountains of course but it's the people too.  I just love it there and for years have dreamed of living there full time.  I usually enjoy visits to just about anywhere but every time I get to Colorado it's different, it feels right to me.

The feeling I had when I shot this photo is no exception to that general sentiment.  I was with a bunch of cool guys and we'd been skiing for a few days prior to driving back to Denver to hop a flight home.  Knowing we had some extra time to kill we decided to avoid I-70 as much as possible and drive across the Loveland Pass just past Arapahoe Basin Ski area.  Being Colorado, it was just good.  The Continental Divide is behind me a few hundred yards, I think, and the camera is this shot is facing west toward A-Basin.  The sky was clear, the sun was bright and the view was amazing.  And I didn't want to leave.
