Motorcyclists approaching Loveland Pass
Lush green plants juxtaposed against bright floral outbursts are wonderful but I also love stark beauty like this view of Loveland Pass at 11,990 feet above sea level--about 400 feet above the tree line. Color is certainly not absent although the colors are more subtle. As we stood on the Continental Divide Trail five motorcylists turned the lower corner and made their way toward us. Later when we met them on the trail I thanked them for adding perspective to my photos. We chatted a while and discovered that they were five businessmen working in five different states who had joined to made a bike trip through the Canyon Country of Arizona, Utah and Colorado. What a trip that would be!
