I feel like this scene could have been taken during any year within the last 150 or so. It’s so serene, and almost devoid of modern influences. At any rate, it makes me calm when I see this panorama, and I am grateful to be able to visit Alpine several times a year. In summer, it’s an escape from the relentless heat, in fall it is a colorful wonderland of golden aspens, and in winter it is a white, frozen, magical world. It’s the perfect place, at least in my opinion.
