The Wet Mountain Valley in southern Colorado is sandwiched between the Wet Mountains on the east and the Sangre de Cristo ("Blood of Christ") Mountains to the west. It is a beautiful place to take pictures. The whole Sangre de Cristo range rises dramatically from the valley floor and is quite spectacular, especially when snow covered. Pictured above is a small slice of the range.
