Snow Covered Mountain

Last month in April, we had a bunch of snow at slightly higher elevations. The mountain was well covered. Here is a picture from downtown colorado springs. In the forground is the founder of Colorado Springs, General Palmer on his horse. In the background is the snow-covered mountain of Pikes Peak.

Here is a picture of Pikes Peak from January. It was a cloudy morning, snow still on the ground. I was driving to work, and there was a break in the clouds. There was Pikes Peak, newly snow covered, and colored from sunrise. I have seen pikes peak this color from sunrise before, but it was even more striking to see it burst onto the scene through this hole in the clouds.
This is the Purple Mountain Majesty in the song America the Beautiful.

Beautiful, Keith. I love my home in Florida but those mountains sure are tempting.

Thanks for the comment! Whenever I go away - I can't wait to get back to the mountain.
