Pan Directions : NE => E => SE

Description:  Taken because of the mist flow. This is an old barn on the Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument. It is very typical of what happens in Teller County the morning after a rain – pretty typical of most of central and western Colorado too. This is not fog of the bank type: it’s “pourable” fog. It’d be really cool in timelapse.
