I am posting four more photographs from our trip to the Front Range. I captured the first photograph a mile or so before we entered Sun Canyon. We stopped at Sun Canyon Lodge—a rustic lodge teeming with mounted game animals and located at the base of a massive cliff— and grabbed a bloody Mary before climbing up into the mountains.
The second photograph features Terry, my brother-in-law, near a patch of arrowleaf balsamroot. This photograph offers some idea of scale.
When I stopped to snap a photograph of a lone boulder with the Rocky Mountain Front in the background, that girl suggested a photograph with her and my sister on the rock. This is one of my favorite pictures from the day. That area, near Willow Creek Reservoir, is strewn with boulders left behind by retreating glaciers.
The last photograph shows the clear water of Willow Creek Reservoir. This photograph also provides a sense of the expanse of open land and open sky beyond the Front.
