Library of Congress, American Memory.

Here's a great research resource for photographs outside the Carnegie Library for Local History in Boulder, including this treasure of Lover's Leap. This is a stunning print of an excellent photograph, beautifully composed, elegantly executed. The cloud cover is classic local afternoon weather.

It's a reminder that the Denver Public Library is rich in archives, and a source I need to return to.

The image here is just above the entrance of Boulder Canyon. The road that wraps around the structure has been replaced by asphalt through a cut in the mountain, eliminating the slow curving right of way shown here.

The rails shown here are along what is now the running path I use for one of my routine runs.
