USA Pro Cycling Challenge 2014

The USA Pro Challenge rolled through Golden this weekend, and I headed to town to try to get some shots.

The race brought them through Golden and then up Lookout Mountain.  They managed this climb in less than half the time of my best effort.  They came back and did a loop through downtown Golden before heading down to Denver for the finish.

I positioned myself at the corner of Washington and 10th to catch them coming through downtown Golden, with the 'Welcome to Golden' sign in the background.

Fireworks in Estes Park

I spent the 4th of July in Estes Park this year, and enjoyed a great fireworks show in front of the Rocky Mountains.
