Stepping Beyond Burning Mountain
As we travel westbound from Denver, the ridgeline beneath us takes on the look of steps as it gently winds toward the northwest. The colors of the layers of stone accentuate the effect and the uniformity of the peaks appear as though intentionally stacked. The most visible and intriguing colors line the faces of Burning Mountain. As we follow the ridge toward Rifle Falls, the aqua surface of Grass Valley Reservoir stands out against the umber terrain.
