This Colorado landscape image shows the view from one of Colorado's iconic 14,000 feet mountains - a panoramic vista from the summit of Mount Yale. It is a long hike up this majestice mountain. The nearest town is Buena Vista, but the trailhead is still a long way from here.<br />

On our ascent of this peak, what you can't see is the thin layer of ice that had frosted the rocks. Along with a slippy path, the winds were howling - probably 60-70 mph here. I was worried about my tripod being blown over, so I had to hold the base of the tripod the entire time. While it was an amazing view of the Rocky Mountains, I was ready to descent to lower elevations on this morning.
