Clearing storm, killer views

Gore Range morning glory.

FRISCO — Three or four times a year I try to head down the Lower Blue and up Ute Pass Road to check out the views of the Gore Range, especially if there’s chance of remnant mid-level clouds to add some interest to the scene. I’ve never been disappointed by the views, and the early morning treks have often been rewarded by stellar light. This set is from Saturday morning. It’s pretty amazing to see how much snow is still caked up on the highest peaks of the Gore Range.
