Colorado Sunset In Buena Vista, CO (Photos - August 20, 2009)

Mt. Princeton, CO I have seen better sunsets over the Sawatch Mountains in central Colorado, but I was riding my bike for some evening exercise and had my digital camera with me.

The first thing that caught my eye were the colorful pink and peachy clouds hovering over Mt. Princeton, a mountain that stands prominently to the west of Buena Vista, Colorado.

Looking toward the east, enough pink and lavendar shades existed to deem it worthy of my camera's attention. You've got to love the wide open spaces of the western states. Most areas have modest amounts of pink and purple in their sunsets regularly, but how often can the average person see them?
