After running an errand, I found myself riding south on Colorado Highway 83 on Scarlett, my 2014 Ural Patrol Sidecar Rig.
Soon enough, we were past Parker and Franktown and motoring south past Castlewood Canyon. Scarlett was pulling strongly and smoothly and the 1000 Kilometer break-in period for the rebuilt engine passed while riding that morning.
Soon we were past the junction with Lorraine Road and it was time to pose Scarlett with Pikes Peak as the background.

Fast forward to Tuesday, the 14th of March. It was yet another very nice sunset for us in the Front Range area of Colorado. Sunsetwx had called for a rather weak sunset but my view of the clouds about 30 minutes before sunset said otherwise, so I took a chance.
First it was the brilliant yellow colors soon after the sun dropped
down below the Front Range mountains.
A brief period of brilliant orange colors
As the sun moved further west, reds replaced the yellow and oranges
reflected in the clouds overhead.
