La neige fraîche sur la montagne Buffalo

Buffalo Mountain, 12777 pieds d'altitude, est l'un des promontoires les plus visibles de Summit County, est situé immédiatement au nord de Frisco à l'écart qui marque l'extrémité sud de la chaîne Al Gore. Ressemblant à un herbivore engraissés enroulée sur le côté sous une couverture de neige de l'hiver, Buffalo Mountain domine Silverthorne, Dillon, Keystone, et Frisco. Buffalo Mountain Trail monte à travers une forêt de pins tordus, passé formations rocheuses exposées, dans un champ de blocs raide de krummholz. Le sentier continue le long de la crête orientée à l'est à une toundra presque plat près du sommet. Buffalo Mountain offre une vue sur la chaîne Ten Mile au sud, Grays Peak, 14270 pieds, et Torreys Peak, 14 267 pieds, au sud-est, et le lagopède alpin sauvage.

Buffalo Mountain, 12,777 feet in elevation, is one of the most visible promontories of Summit County, being situated immediately north of Frisco at the gap that marks the southern end of the Gore Range. Looking like a fattened herbivore curled on its side beneath a covering of winter snows, Buffalo Mountain overlooks Silverthorne, Dillon, Keystone, and Frisco. Buffalo Mountain Trail ascends through a lodgepole pine forest, past exposed rock formations, into a steep boulder field of krummholz. The trail continues along the east-facing ridge to a nearly flat tundra near the summit. Buffalo Mountain offers views of the Ten Mile Range to the south, Grays Peak, 14,270 feet, and Torreys Peak, 14,267 feet, to the southeast, and the Ptarmigan Wilderness.

Bom dia, Muhammad,
One of the nicest things in that memorable photo is the bird flying toward the mountains. He is not the focal point, but it has a key role in this photo.
Best regards,

Hi Muhammad,
A fantastic capture of such beauty and the inclusion of the eagle is an absolute bonus, well done.

  • Great
