Looks more like Meeker. Where is Baseline Road-Southest of Longs-Meeker?

Yeah, most of the mountain you see is in fact Meeker; Longs is just barely poking above it from this angle, and is somewhat obscured by the clouds. But because the distinct flattop of Longs sets it apart on the horizon, locals refer to this massif as "Longs," even though they're really seeing mostly Meeker.

Yeah, it's always interesting how people
build their houses on the foothills like that.
Would be awesome to be there in summer and
fall; BUT seems to me the winters would be
harsh - unless you have a warm fireplace and
cozy blanket to keep you warm. Nice picture!!!

You're right that summer and fall are very nice; my vote personally goes with fall. Temperatures at the elevation of the road I took this photo from often reach over 100F, so it's no ice chest. Here we're still in the Front Range, the stretch of development from Colorado Springs to Fort Collins which hold the lion's share of Colorado's population. The houses you see are probably registered as part of Boulder.

You have some wonderful photos, by the way.

Oh yes, elevation at this point of view is probably somewhere just above 5,000 ft. Fairly moderate, especially in comparison with the 14,265 of Longs. (I hope that's correct; I quoted from memory).

So, we're looking at an elevation gain of
over 9,000 feet?? No wonder people like to
build their structures up there! The views
must be simply incredible!!
