Sunset at Timberline
Timberline in the Colorado Rockies begins somewhere between 10,500 and 11,500 feet above sea level. This is where the forests of Englemann spruce and subalpine firs finally give way to the treeless alpine tundra. Watching the sun set at this edge of the world (especially with a good hot cup of tea!) is one of the more pleasant experiences in life.
