Colorado Mountain Pictures

These pictures were taken on 11/14/01 and 11/11/01 while flying my Citabria 7GCBC over the mountains west of Denver. All of these pictures were taken with a  Nikon 995 Camera with a Circular Polarizing filter. Most of the pictures were taken at an altitude of about 14,000 ft. (msl), except the ski area pictures which were generally taken from an altitude of about 12,000 ft. (msl)
