I came across this photo I took, looking west, from the top of Wolf Creek Pass. I think it was last May 30th. The pass is at 10,860 feet and, to my mind, one of the easier ones, here in Colorado above 10,000 ft., to drive across. It’s a good road but has a few fairly tight switchbacks. One needs to pay serious attention to the speed limits because they aren’t kidding. The grades are fairly steep at 7%. Many times when I have been in the mountains, there can be complete silence, and then you hear a raven chatter, letting you know you aren’t alone. Here’s a little haiku for you.
Breathe thin crisp clear air. Eleven thousand feet high. Raven calls your name.
