Steamboat Barn in Beautiful Sunset Light

Well, almost alpenglow….

Driving back from dinner tonight, we had gorgeous setting sunlight. So we decided to swing by the infamous Steamboat Barn to see how the light was playing on the icon.

Sure enough, we had 10 minutes at most of this beautiful setting sunlight we call Alpenglow — made famous by the late great Galen Rowell.

I think I’ve shot this barn every trip here to Steamboat since about 1996. Love the barn, location and tonight… loved the lighting on it. It’s an American Icon. One look at this barn, and you know it’s Steamboat….
