The photo does not do it justice. I took a break from my hike to watch the movement in the clouds, the sunlight, the color changes on Red Mountain, etc. It was one of those moments you hope for when hiking in the mountains. Thanks for your note and always appreciate your feedback. #10399079

It is difficult to believe that the photo does not do the scene justice, David, because your image is stunning! I am not a hiker anymore, but I hope for moments of spectacular anywhere I might be! *;)) #10399623
