Rocky Mountain glow
Morning alpenglow on the Gore Range, Summit County, Colorado.
FRISCO —Friday brought a lovely April morning to go out and capture a few images of the full moon setting over the Gore Range. Sure, the snow is a bit crusty for hiking, but it’ll be melted soon enough — at least at lower elevations. But for now, it was one more wintry scene from the flanks of Tenderfoot Mountain, and a spectacular alpenglow to go along with the spectacle of the setting moon. If you like these images, please visit our online Summit County gallery at Imagekind, and also at FineArt America, featuring an amazing selection of Summit County landscapes.

Ski trails on Peak 9 and Peak 10 at Breckenridge Ski area are still coated with the deepest snow of the season, although the ski lifts shut down a week ago.
