September 5, 2016 - Part 1

We went hiking on this Labor Day on top of Lookout Mountain.
Jed sees the lighted "M" on the side of Lookout Mountain every night from his bedroom window
and has been wanting to get an up-close view of it ever since we got here.
Since we were passing it on the way to the trail, we stopped and climbed up.
I'm not ashamed to say it was scary.
This was the best part of the trail to take pictures from....
the rest of the trail had no growth on the side that slid down the mountain.
I suppose handrails would spoil the looks of the place, but I sure would have appreciated them.

I managed to squeeze out enough bravery to turn around and take a few shots of the valley.
There was a lot of clouds in the sky casting shadows on everything...
everything, that is, except Denver in the distance.  
It was like a hole in the clouds opened up right over it.

As we were coming down the mountain, the clouds shifted and lit up this mesa instead.
