Cold, rainy, but beautiful
This was my second time camping in the high mountains of Colorado. It was miserable pitching my tent in the rain but I can't help but notice the very huge mountain kind of protecting me from worsening weather. It's kind of ironic to say they are protecting me because they are known to be very unpredictable and notorious but when I was there, they kind of blocked moving clouds from storming my campsite. I was then gifted with a beautiful sight of the setting sun so I grabbed a photo before it got dark.
