Tonight's sunset was somewhere above average based on past experiences. The big color show happened over Mt. Yale, and I had a nice view of it as I stood on Chaffee County Road 326.

I zoomed-in and out to provide a few different takes with this view.

    Mt. Princeton barely made the highlights this evening. There was just a touch of pink and purple happening out that way.

    Then, I spotted those bright clouds over Mt. Columbia turn pink. And yes, I was sitting in my car right there on Chaffee County Road 361!

    The clouds became more intense with color for a few minutes. How beautiful!

    Chaffee County Road 326 is one of my favorite spots in this valley to watch the sunset. It starts (or ends) at the Maxwell Park Schoolhouse and travels west to Chaffee County Road 339.
