High in the mountains of Rocky Mountain National Park, at Poudre Pass, the Colorado River rises as a small stream draining a wet meadow. It makes its way down from almost two miles above sea level, gathering waters from tributaries along the way. When it reaches Glenwood Springs it takes in the Roaring Fork river. About three miles further downstream I found this scene on a pull-off. Rivers are symbolic to me of the value of moving forward in life. To perservere. Many changes take place just as with the path of the Colorado. But it continues forward, not lingering in what was before.
