Here is the North Saint Vrain Canyon from Cook Mountain, in the foothills of Boulder County, Colorado. We call this canyon the Grand Canyon of Boulder County. From the Coulson Gulch Trailhead it used to be possible to do a scenic loop hike to the bottom of the canyon, but since the Great Flood of September 2013, the washed out bridges have not been repaired. This picture was taken on November 13, 2020.

Equipment used: Canon EOS Rebel T5i with a standard zoom lens (EF-S 18-55 mm).
