Sunset at Cottonwood Pass
|A High Elevation Sunset
July 6, 2014 - This was the sunset as I faced west at Cottonwood Pass. I stood at the small pond on the west side of the divide. So pretty!
Violet and orange to the horizon.

There isn't much that beats a Colorado sunset. Great shot, Mark! :)

"There are no coincidences," some say. I agree. It was neat to see Mark Shaw at Cottonwood Pass with his monster camera equipment.
We spent over an hour snapping photos as the sun slowly lowered behind the mountains. It was good to catch up with him.
Three years ago when I biked across the USA in 2011,
Mark generously become one of my trip sponsors. For that, I'll always be grateful to him.
Mark is also a long-term cancer survivor who's been involved with
Reel Recovery for many years. This is
an organization that hosts fly fishing retreats for men who are recovering from all forms of cancer. Mark
is launching a men's cancer support group in Chaffee County that will be meeting this fall.
