This is a view of the Rocky Mountains that are west and south of Boulder, Colorado. The apartment I lived in was located in the south/west area of Broomfield. There was actually a sign on the street in front of the apartments that said, “Welcome to Superior,” but somehow my apartment was in Broomfield.
One thing I learned in Alaska is that when you see green water in it, that means there’s protein in the water, which means there will be fish, and also bears.
If you know where to look, you too can find this 12,005’ altitude sign in Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP), in the Estes Park, Colorado area.
If you ever visit the Boulder, Colorado area you’ll hear of the “flatirons.” Many stores and businesses are named after them. This is them.

Here’s a little view of a road in the mountains of Hatcher Pass, Alaska.
Enjoyed Cowboys & Aliens at Wasilla’s fancy new stadium seating movie theater. How strange to walk out of a theater and into a valley of fireweed surrounded by misty mountains.

I went up to Rocky Mountain National Park yesterday, and there was still some snow in the mountains. This snow is near the Alpine Visitor’s Center at a little under 12,000 altitude.
While I’m going through some medical treatments I drive into Boulder, Colorado once or twice a week. This was today’s view (June 20, 2019) while driving into Boulder on Arapahoe Road. As you can see, the tallest mountains still have some snow on them.
Yesterday’s bad weather left a fresh coat of white on Mt. Whatsitsname.
