A – The windmills are at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. Just on the other side of them is the Flatirons Vista Trail where I took Alas, No Flatirons, Mile High Cow, Prairie Meets Mountain, The Road To Eldorado among other pictures.
B – This is the hill seen in “Clear, Not Close”. That picture was taken about 100 yards to right of where I am standing and looking towards Longs Peak.
C – Longs Peak is a 14er (a mountain over 14 thousand feet tall) and is very prominent around these parts. The peak is about 45 miles from where I am standing. It is seen in Clear, Not Close, Serendipity among others.
D – This red car is in this picture several times. How many copies of it can you find?
F – National Center for Atmospheric Research on Table Mesa in Boulder (about 13 miles). Some of the pictures taken here include, Dear Duo, Dusted Bear, Lichen Rock, The Tallest Grass, For the Cow Fans
H – These are cows.
J -This is the entrance to Eldorado Canyon.
K – Most of this snow is along the Continental Divide (about 45 miles). The snow you see is on the east side and will melt and eventually flow to the Gulf of Mexico. The snow on the west side will flow into the Pacific Ocean (if it doesn’t evaporate first)
L – The coyote in “Mixed Use” was somewhere about here. That picture was taken a few hundred feet to the left of where I am standing.
N – If you fly this direction about 40 miles you will be in Estes Park near the Rocky Mountain National Park. That is where I took Elk Classic, Old Boys Club, Mount Chapin, Peekaboo Elk, Lodgepole, Winter Garden, High Country, etc
O – You won’t find O on the picture – O is behind you. This is where I live. Many of the other pictures were taken here.
