The view from the office window

As some of you might remember, I now work for eCollege as a Network Engineer.  The office is located in the SW quadrant of the Denver Metro Area, in the Southglenn Mall complex.

We're in the tallest building in the area at five stories, which provides a great view of the Front Range Mountains to include Mount Evans.

When the light is right and time is available, I sometimes go to the top of the garage parking structure next door and pose the motorcycle of the day with Mount Evans in the background.  See what you think:

For the photography geeks amongst you, both shots were taken with maximum optical zoom setting engaged to make the mountains seem closer than the actually are.

As you can see, it's late May, and there's still quite a bit of snow on Mount Evans.  The road to the top, highest paved road in North America, is scheduled to be open this weekend but I wouldn't be surprised the recent wet weather will delay that for a few days.

I'm in a 5 story building in Lakewood, but we're too close to the foothills to see the real mountains beyond. I work in the basement with the machines anyway- no windows!

That snow looks wonderful. What a great view from your office. It feels really hot today around here.

Very nice pictures of a great scene. The mountains are nice too.

Great view! I need to visit the mountains this year. I just have office buildings and the state capitol to stare at.
