Plainview, off of Highway 72, is an interesting road that winds it way north, by several ranches, then up, and if you have permission, will take you to the radio transmitter at the top that KBCO and other radio stations use.
This view is looking north east over a part of Coal Creek Canyon Park from Plainview Road. The location is west of Highway 93 and north of Highway 72.
It was a cloudy day with a mountain wave cloud covering the metro area and beyond with the only sunlight visible at the horizon. We get these days fairly often on the front range. You feel if you drive far enough in any direction eventually you will escape the clouds and be in the sun. These type of clouds can feel like a cap over the city not letting any sunshine through.
