My Commute

Brought my camera with me today so I could take a few pics of my commute. Hope you enjoy!

Dang, it was cold yesterday! I love commuting, and Denver weather is usually pretty good. The problem with commuting is that you usually leave in the coldest part of the day and we have wide high/low temperature swings. I can usually only handle 25 degrees at the low end.

I go from the north side of Castle Rock to just a hair south of DTC. It's really a nice commute.

Yeah I had to bring the backpack just to carry the morning layers. I think there was a 30+ degree change yesterday
