Colorado High

If you ever wonder why I love living in Colorado, well, maybe this’ll help.

That video was shot by Daniel Lowe as he drove through western Colorado and eastern Utah. Where I live, there’s substantial light pollution, but out by Gunnison the skies get dark (one of the many reasons my wife and I held a Science Getaways there), and the stars are magnificent.

And the geology! Some of it is lifted up, some of it eroded down, but there’s a billion years of history tucked away in the American Southwest. This is an astonishing place to live.

And that spillway/waterfall at 01:20? Lowe told me that’s south of Ouray on U.S. Highway 550. That’s a bit of a haul from my neck of the woods, but if I’m ever out that way, I’ll have to stop and see. This planet is a source of unending delights.

It's a fan thing
