NCAR Mesa

NCAR Mesa is our closest mountain park, just a couple of miles west of my apartment. Late this afternoon I got back to it for the first time in at least a year.

NCAR stands for the National Center for Atmospheric Research. It conducts collaborative research in atmospheric and Earth system science. The great architect, I.M. Pei, designed the Mesa Laboratory headquarters at the east end of the mesa. I think that this building, inspired by the Mesa Verde cliff dwellings in Southwestern Colorado, is Boulder’s most beautiful. It certainly has the greatest setting!

Today the light at the end of the day was equal to the beauty of the scene.

I had remembered the tree below from the last time I hiked here and wondered if I could capture the dead tree framing the living one. Today I got to them just as the light faded.
