June 17, 2014 - Because I live in nearby Buena Vista and can't get enough of the mountains, frequently I find myself at the lofty heights of Cottonwood Pass. On this day, I arrived by bike and snapped a number of mountain scenery shots. The content speaks for itself. Enjoy!

It's no easy ride to make it to Cottonwood Pass by bicycle, but it's so worth it.

I worked hard cycling up Chaffee County Road 306. When I saw this large block of snow, I had to stop to get a picture. Snow equals happiness!
