Winter in Colorado: Longs Peak Panorama.

While driving back to Boulder from Rocky Mountain National Park on Colorado Highway 7,  I stopped to take some pictures of Longs Peak. Longs Peak at 14,255 feet is one of 54 mountains in Colorado over 14,000 feet. Several of the images were combined to afford a wider panorama including Estes Cone to the right. Estes Cone looks to be almost the same height as Longs Peak, but is only 11,006 feet.
