Dror Baron: Colorado (8.2001)

On our way back home, we passed through Colorado. Unfortuntely, we were short on time, so we couldn't really go see anything too cool. However, we made a 4 hour detour from the highway, and drove through Independence pass, whose elevation is more than 12000 feet.

This stream is meandering its way out of the mountains.

This view shows both the line where the trees stop growing (due to the high elevation) and several ice packs. Although we visited there in mid-August, the tempeatures required wearing light coats.
