Purple Mountain Majesty

Posted on: January 26, 2010

The song America The Beautiful was written by Katharine Lee Bates on a visit to Pikes Peak in Colorado in 1883.  Lots of people when they hear that song have probably thought, “That’s ridiculous, mountains aren’t purple!” but those of us who live in Colorado can attest that the mountains really do turn purple in the morning if you catch them before sunrise.

It’s kind of like Santa Claus or the Tooth Fairy, you might not be able to prove it, but if you happen to wake up at the right time on the right day, you might just catch them in the act.

Below are some photos of a purply sunrise one Crocs staffer snapped on her drive into work via Golden last week.
