Sunrise from Echo Lake, CO. The mountain is 14,110 ft Mt. Evans. The road to the top of the mountain is the highest paved road in North America. Two days after this photo was taken the road to the top was closed for the winter at this point because of a foot of snow. That's Colorado weather for you! I recently entered this image in a judged competition. One of the judge's comments was that I should have found a spot to photograph where there wasn't so much pine beetle kill. Just for the record, there isn't a single pine beetle infested tree in this image. That is the real sunrise color on the pine trees.
