Vertical Rainbow

The after affect of having a huge thunderstorm blow past the mountain. While the west side of Colorado Springs was getting pounded by rain, we had clear blue skies and a fantastic view of this rainbow.

The entire storm moving its way into Colorado Springs.
Didn’t make this shot a panoramic in order to give more attention to the magnificent rainbow shooting out of the storm cloud.

Coming Down on the Cog

Due to an incoming storm threatening the safety of the Pikes Peak Highway, several summit workers, including myself (obviously), had to go down on the last train since the “heavy duty” van wouldn’t have had enough seats in it.
The sun beginning to set, with snow still on the ground in mid-June.

Signs of Summer

A thunderstorm rolling past the summit of the mountain to the north.
