Rocky Mountains through the clouds, Colorado, USA

One of my problems when taking pictures from a commercial flight is figuring out afterwards exactly what I’ve taken a picture of, especially if I’m not familiar with the location.  In this case, a quick look at the flight tracker and google maps showed my flight only crossed one significant mountain range, so I feel confident declaring this is a picture of the Rocky Mountains – more exactly, part of the Southern Rocky Mountains in Colorado.

I could see the thick clouds settled over the mountains as we approached, so didn’t hold out much hope of getting any pictures – I was pleasantly surprised to find some photogenically located gaps in the clouds as we passed over!
