Awesome Alpenglow on Mt. Crested Butte

I went out for a walk with the dog after work the other night and I was lucky enough to witness this amazing display. It was pretty cool watching a small sliver of sunlight sneaking through the clouds develop into this spotlight of alpenglow on Mt. Crested Butte.

Nights like this are why I live here.

Looking the other direction towards Paradise Divide is always beautiful too, but it really sort of demonstrates how limited and focused this beam of light was on the Peak. Almost like someone was shinning a very bright cosmic flashlight on the mountain.
