Happy 141st birthday! Colorado, the Centennial State, came into the union on August 1st, 1876. President Ulysses S. Grant signed Proclamation 230 admitting us as the 38th state. In honor of the occasion, I'm posting a plein air oil painting I did years ago of Guanella Pass near Georgetown at an elevation of 11,669 ft. (3557 m.) Alas, the image is a photo of a photo, but you can still see that purple mountains majesty thing going on! 'Tis a privilege to live in Colorado!
