We made it! The end of the year is nearly upon us. I don't know about you, but I had a crazy 2015 with plenty of ups and downs and all-arounds. I enjoyed the ride! For the second year in a row, I've managed to post every single day on this blog, a total of 855 images (give or take a few). That's a lot of pictures! I hope you've enjoyed them as much as I've enjoyed taking them, even though some were frankly quite awful, which begs the question, "Is it better to blog a bad picture or no picture at all?" I guess that's a matter of opinion! I thought I'd close out 2015 with one of my favorite subjects, Pikes Peak. I think one of the best unimpeded views of the mountain is downtown, in a lowly parking lot, no less. I took this photo yesterday afternoon at 4:04PM from the upper parking lot of the library. Isn't it lovely? No matter how much my city grows and changes, this incredible view is eternal, thank goodness. The Adaman Club is mid-ascent of this formidable mountain as I type, so that they can light fireworks from the summit at the stroke of midnight to ring in the New Year, as they have done since 1922. (And believe me it's cold out there. Those guys are dedicated -- or crazy!)
Wishing you a Happy New Year! Celebrate with the people you love! Cheers, and see you in 2016!
