Hot air in cold air

Saw this while driving to work one morning. It's on 95'th Street just north of Arapaho in Boulder County, Colorado. Technically, I think I was in Lafayette. It's not often that I see a colorful balloon against snow covered rural foothills. I'm 99% sure that's Mt. Audubon. The Indian Peaks are back there, too.

 

You can also see little sections of Olde Stage Road (on the mountainside) which is a favorite bicycling route. The road from which I took this photo is also a popular biking route.

 

I cropped and color enhanced the original some. Here's the original: www.flickr.com/photos/question_everything/4160551179/in/p....

 

The foreground is a hay field.
