Apart from the collecting I’ve done so far in Colorado (which, by the way, has turned up really nothing good), I have also gotten to witness some really interesting Rock Mountain geology. Here are a few highlights:
1. Beaver Lake
This lake, formed by glaciers and fed by snowfields, is situated above the resort town of Beaver Creek, and is home to trout and, of course, beavers, among other things. So far, my ventures have taken me to the lake twice, the first ascent more pleasant then the second, in which I was subject to two thunderstorms. Here are a couple pictures:
I’ve also managed to witness some pretty beautiful sunsets and their affect on the color of the Gore range. Some peaks in the range rise to more then 13,000 feet above sea level, but all are under 14,000 feet. I managed to snap the pictures below during what became a very, very pretty evening.
