This shot of the Crestone Group within the Sangre de Cristo Range is from a wildlife area off 285 in the San Luis valley. If you ever get a chance to drive over to Crestone, the view is dramatic. The peaks rise higher and higher, and then disappear behind the front row of foothills as you get close to town.
I like the pastel shades of this picture; it was about 1/2 hour before sunset.
Crestone is just a tiny little place, and there are a couple of other towns that strike me as being similar in Colorado: Eldorado Springs near Boulder, and La Plata near Durango. And perhaps Eldora. They are all small communities right at the edge of tall mountains, seemingly with lots of hippies and/or artists-in-residence. I actually had a grad student teacher in college who summered in Crestone. Lucky guy.
