The Front Range Foothills of Colorado are all between upper ten thousand and lower eleven thousand feet. Shown here are the Twin Sisters at sundown in Larimer County, Colorado, straddling Rocky Mountain National Park and Roosevelt National Forest. Photo by Richard F. Fleck

Twin Sisters

Through golden aspen

We climb to top to see high

Gray block of Longs Peak.

Squaw Peak

Winding past lodgepoles,

We quickly ascend loose slabs

To summit in space.

Devil’s Head

We slip on dark ice

In slanting woods until steps

Take us up highest ridge.
