There's a summer scene of the mountain in the last two photos in the first two shots of “Solitary Places.” [photoblog.com]

Usually one thinks of the gold around Cripple Creek, Colorado being buried deep under the ground, but in autumn there's a wealth of aspen “gold” covering the mountainsides as well!

A view from the windows of the Pikes Peak Heritage Center in Cripple Creek.

      Marsha, I love the intimacy of the shot through the window, but also like the hugely panoramic scene in #4. This entire set is "golden"!
