This twisted and bent lodgepole pine seemingly grows out of solid rock on Lumpy Ridge in Rocky Mountain National Park. The tuft of green to the right proves that it is indeed alive. April 1996.

Another mountain rodent. This guy was one of the residents on the summit of Chief Mountain. Chief Mountain is an 11,709 ft. peak in the foothills of the Colorado Front Range. It is an easy class 2 hike from the Squaw Pass Road to the summit. The views from the summit are fantastic for such a 'low' peak. July 2006.
