Weekly Photo Challenge: Grand

This week’s photo challenge is GRAND.

If you want to grasp the grandiosity of the Rocky Mountains, all you have to do is climb a 14er (a 14,000 foot plus peak) and take a look around.

These photos are from Mt. Sneffels (14,150 ft.) in September 2011.

And these, from Handies Peak (14,048 ft.) in September 2012.

Sharing these photos makes me realize I need to go climb some more mountains!

Other interpretations of GRAND can be found here.

    Girlfriend! How can you climb those snow-topped mountains in shorts and a short-sleeved shirt?! What a trooper! Boy, you must be one of those folks who can walk in snow with flip-flops on. These pics sure are grand! And just love the beautiful pic of the flowers! How lovely it must’ve been to see ’em way up there!
