Postcards From the Weekend: Sunset Hike in Lyons, Colorado

Vincent van Gogh couldn’t have painted it any better. Wistful pink clouds fading into a darkening night sky. Rays from the sinking sun envelope the grassy fields surrounding the miles of singletrack that begin at the Picture Rock Trailhead in Lyons and weave their way into the quiet Foothills of Colorado. The dimming light reaches out across the land one last time—breathing life into the ethereal and vast landscape. In time, the sun lazily falls behind the mountain tops, and the pale blue sky is replaced with a fiery kaleidoscope of colors before the night sky sleepily tucks itself in for the night.
