Yuri Point
Yuri Point

"Yuri Point" is a small hill located near Boulder, Colorado, just south of the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR). Arguably the most prominent feature is a tree with a very interesting shape. From a vantage point further west (to the right of where this photo was taken from), the tree has a shape very much like that of a stegosaurus climbing the hill. A friend of mine has named this tree "Stegosaurus Tree." This general area is rich with wildflowers in the spring.

The Flatirons near Boulder, Colorado, are slabs of rock jutting out of the ground at a steep angle, and are so named due to their resemblance to the old clothing irons. In winter when the conditions are right, they can be seen with a coat of snow and frost that gives them a magical appearance.

Taken from a hill in Broomfield, this photograph shows Louisville, Colorado in October as the leaves change and some early snowfall is visible on the tops of some of the Front Range mountains. The Colorado Technical Center is in the lower right. Sugarloaf Mountain is visible on the right.
