In October 2006, my friends and I were en route to Rocky MountainNational Park and rested briefly at Berthoud Pass. Here's a shot of my friend Paul,who was visiting from Maryland and myself on the right. Behind us is part of the westerly view from the pass.
The east side of Berthoud Pass.Interestingly, there is a warning to back country skiers. Long-range weaponry is used to combat potentially dangerous avalanches.
