As we were visiting Colorado Springs and enjoying the beautiful sunsets, I thought about how pretty the mountains were as the sun was sinking behind them.
Much of my life the sunset has been less involved with the mountains. Mind you, I've lived in the mountains, but if I think about it the largest ones have always been East of my home(s).
Here's a quick rundown.
Grand Junction, Colorado - First 18 years
Provo, Utah - Salt Lake City, Utah - college years
All along the Front.
Here's a cool picture of SLC
Portland, OR - from 1980-1994
Los Gatos, CA - 1994 till now
snow on Mt. Hamilton from my house. There is the coast range, that I live in the foothills of that is West, but the biggest mountains of this range and certainly the big Sierra Nevada Range which are the real mountains of California are East.
So my random observation of the day?
The big mountains are always, in my experience, on the East.
