I came across quite a few bald eagles in Canada and Alaska, but didn’t know we had them right next door here in Colorado. I knew construction on this project had been held up for at least two years, and now I know why.
Driving into Boulder, Colorado — the hospital is just a mile up the road on the right — there’s still some snow in the mountains as of June 2, 2018.
If you’re into rodeos, I’ve heard about the Cheyenne Frontier Days Rodeo every year since I moved to Colorado, but I haven’t been there yet. The dates for 2018 are July 20-29.

I don’t take too many photos of traffic intersections, but this is a favorite view of Boulder, Colorado and the Rocky Mountains. In this image I am on South Boulder Road, with the city of Boulder directly ahead.
I had to go to a physical therapy appointment early this morning in Louisville, Colorado, and one benefit of getting up early were some beautiful views of the overnight snow, clouds on one side of the sky, and sunshine on the other.
