Mount Sopris Sunrise
In the Colorado Rockies, this early April scene shows that while winter dies hard up high, an ever-higher sun can work wonders down low.
Mount Sopris is a twin-summit mountain in the northwestern Elk Mountains range of the Rocky Mountains of North America. Its two summits, East Sopris and West Sopris, are one-half mile (0.8 km) apart, and rise to the same elevation of 12,965 feet (3,952 m).
