    At one time my son and family lived up in the Poncha Pass. Interesting drive through that area.

    Nice! The cloud on the second photo is very interesting.

    Any history on the name of the mountain range, "blood of Christ"?

    This was originally Spanish territory. Nearly every evening, the mountain peaks take on a red color just before sunset. They say that's why.
