Parachute, CO (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: Between DeBeque and Rifle, along the North side of the highway are a wonderful series of mountains, full of rocks and ridges and colors. The light snow highlighted the details that make up the whole of the mountain and today, I could have stopped a thousand times, as each mountain has it's own patterns. It was like driving through a huge art gallery. I was trying to back to Denver before it got dark and before rush hour, but finally I had to stop once. I think I was close to Parachute.

No, I missed the mini-series. I prefer to read
a book before I see any film version of it, and I
hadn't read it yet. Still haven't, but I believe
I will make it my next read!

Did you see the miniseries.? Centennial is a good book too. I think the first section was written from a dinosaurs point of view. I don't quite remember but it was very unusual.

Yes, I do! I have been told to read "Centennial"
by James A. Michener, as it tells about how
Colorado was formed, geologically. I may have
to do that. I still have my Dad's copy. He loved
that part of the book.

You also love the patterns and forms. Geology would help you understand how they are made and why they occur.

I believe you are right, Parshall! I am always
bringing home small rocks that I find interesting!
