Yampa Valley Wonder


Yampa Valley Wonder

I was pedaling towards home, at a brisk pace in order to beat the sunset, because I had forgotten my bike lights. I am always taking in all the amazing sights and details of nature but on this ride was actively telling myself not to stop, "don't take your phone out". But as the Core Trail in Steamboat Springs CO winds around and up and over the Yampa River , the color changes were magnificent, stopping me in my tracks. I thought I might be looking at a Monet as I held onto the bridge railing while taking this photo with my phone. I never regret stopping for a look, and I made it home before dark. Enjoy.
