I came upon a magnificent, unobstructed panoramic view of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range. I was on my mountain bike riding up a country road; rode partly and got off to walk often to catch my breath. It was my first ride at 9,000 feet and when I came upon this view; it took my breath away. I have given myself the challenge to ride that road all the way up without getting off the bike. It may take some time to get there but I am committed to do it before I am 60 in three months!
I went back the next in my car with my camera as it was a very clear blue sky and with the snow capped peaks, it would translate very well in black and white. Now I just have to learn, and then remember, all the names of these peaks that I get to admire every day in all sorts of weather. Truly breathtaking!
