Heading to the office this afternoon I spied some promising-looking clouds to the west, and with thoughts of a backlit orange sunset behind the high peaks made a detour up Flagstaff Mountain to the Lost Gulch Overlook. It’s the nearest place to downtown that offers a clean view west to the Indian Peaks, and as usual for a decent day there was a small crowd there to see the sunset. Alas, sunset didn’t happen. Returning to town, though, I found a pull-off I’d overlooked before with a great view over Boulder. On the right day, this might be a good location for sunrise too.
