This is Crested Butte, Colorado.
Just north of the idyllic resort town of Crested Butte is a valley amongst the mountains. In the distance you can see Snodgrass Mountain which is basically a Chia Pet of pine trees. On the right is Gothic Mountain with the East River traversing alongside. With the heavy winter snowfall, the rivers and tributaries flowing in the valleys were extremely active - the constant hum of the rushing water sounding like the murmur of a large crowd at a football game.
Also in this same valley is the Rocky Mountain Biological Laboratory which studies thinks like climate change, high-altitude ecosystems and pollination. Not a bad place to go to work every day, right?
