Artist's Description

Golden, Colorado. The mountain to the left is a portion of Lookout Mountain. There is a 2 lane road called the Lariat Loop, cut up the side, and a much easier road up the back side of the mountain. The views from the top are Epic, as one overlooks Golden, the tops of 2 flat mountains (North and South Tables) , then the Denver metro area and the Great Plains. On a clear day it is said you can see all the way to Kansas. Kansas being lower in elevation helps I suppose.
I’m sure the other mountains are named as well, and I chastise myself for not knowing them. The Mountains around this town are like a Stonehenge, as they helped me as a kid to learn about the changing position of the sun. Around the Winter Solstice, the Sun sets over the pointed peak on Lookout Mountain, then proceeding to set farther North, several peaks away. The Moon always rises arount S. Table Mountain (if you are Downtown Golden). They really helped when I was first learning Astronomy as well…

By the way, the snow was from today (May 1st)
