My hands are searching for you.
My arms are outstretched towards you.
I feel you on my fingertips...
I can feel you all around me.[link]
that's kind of how it feels.
you look all around you and the entire world stretches out forever but seems as if it is still just right at your finger tips. a glance transports you and your thoughts over the horizon. One is never more completely removed from, yet a part of the world..... of course it could just be the oxygen deprivation.
Colorado... a Spanish word for Red, It's kind of easy to see how this was decided upon as a place name. this is near sunset, looking down on Red Mnts. #1 & #2 as seen from the summit of, the rather imaginatively named, Red Mnt. #3. the road (I use the term loosely) you see is Corkscrew Pass, the first pass of the morning."The stunning red, maroon, orange, and yellow colors of the Red Mountains are primarily due to past hydrothermal alteration of these rocks. Hydrothermal alteration is literally the process of "hot water" circulation through the strata that changes the mineral composition of the original rocks. Hydrothermal fluids commonly contain significant concentrations of metals and sulfur. Hydrothermally altered rocks can contain significant amounts of disseminated sulfide minerals, primarily pyrite (iron sulfide). This process happened within and surrounding the Silverton caldera. Subsequent erosion of the strata exposes the pyrite to oxidation, and as the iron combines with oxygen it turns the rock various colors evident in the Red Mountains. "
