Sunbeams and Spotlights

Sunbeams and spotlight are just part of the suns purpose in this segment.  Pikes Peak, just outside of Colorado Springs, Colorado, always makes a great backdrop for photos and lends to wonderful light experiences in all kinds of weather.  Here we are in the middle of a long cold winter and yet the sunbeams seem to hold promises similar to rainbows that good things are on the way.  Just like a lighthouse on the shores of the oceans, sometimes the sun seems to be offering a light for direction.  Where we live, the mountain range and Pikes Peak are a clear indication of west, so even when we get lost in the area in the many winding neighborhoods all we have to do is look for Pikes Peak to get our directions straight.  No need for a compass here.

Cheyenne Mountain Antenae Terrace
Yes, that's right.  Even though we are in a beautiful mountainous area, Commerce and the military still need communications.  Cheyenne Mountain has become a focal antenae spot for the far reaching signals needed.
