Golden sunset light kisses the peak of Mount Silverheels, as seen from Boreas Mountain. Legend has it this massive mountain was named after a dance hall girl, who was the only woman to stay behind to take care of ailing gold miners when a smallpox epidemic broke out. Interestingly enough, the rainbow in this image seems to end directly over South Park, which was founded as a mining town during the gold rush in the mid 1800's. This entire area is rich in Gold Rush history. Boreas Pass was an early route constructed in the 1860's to connect the two mining towns of South Park and Breckenridge, Colorado. In the 1880's narrow guage rails were laid to accomodate a train which would run gold from the high mountain gold camps back to Denver. Today Boreas Pass is a dirt road enjoyed by motorists looking for stunning mountain scenery, but on this particular evening it seemed the ghosts of a time long since passed, were stirring.

Terrific colors and I love how the foreground is just a solid patch of paintbrush. And the clouds and rainbow isn't a bad touch either :)

I guess this is good. Can't say any negative things about your photos really. The rainbow is nice, the indian paintbrush is nice, the sky is nice...It's just a nice photo to look at.
