Black and Whites in Life - Week 35  
 Black and Whites in Life
Week 35 – Up on the Great Divide 
Jazz and Prowl ride the Monarch Pass aerial tram up on the Continental Divide. View is looking west-ish. Not the best or even the cutest of the pictures I took this week, this one was a tad more unique. 

We drove up to Monarch Pass this past weekend and from the top of the pass rode the aerial tram to the peak which is approximately 12,000 feet above sea level. Took this shot from inside the tram car since it was way too windy for a Jazz and Prowl photo shoot up top with wind 31 MPH and gusts at 38 to 40 MPH. While it is not always so windy on the peak, the winds were a prelude to yet another small cold front moving through the region.   

Previous Week:  Tractors, Tractors Everywhere – It’s the peak of haying season in the Gunnison Valley   

Next Week:  Fort Carson Tank Display, Colorado Springs, Colorado

That is awesome how you got them balanced up there!

I love the background scenery. It's gorgeous up there.

I was pretty impressed they were willing to stay on that little piece of ledge. The views were wonderful, even with the storm front moving comming in.Thanks for looking. :)

Oh yes, there is glass. I've been pretty daring with them in a few of the photos, but I do have limits. (or should I say, they have limits?) THanks for looking and commenting.
