Welcome to rural Colorado. I really expected to see mountains and hills as far as one could see when I first arrived here, and was surprised by how flat the countryside appeared. What I didn't realize was that these so called flatlands were on the mountain itself!
I love windmills, theres something so fairy-tale-ish, so Don Quixote-ish about them. I'm not even really sure of their purpose other than to entertain dreamers like myself. The grey sky and haze in the background of these pictures is due to some timely and much needed rain. You will rarely hear the residents here complain about rain.
