Estes Park photographer Erik Stensland probably isn’t thinking about politics when he’s in Colorado’s high country capturing images like this. After all, when you’re in the mountains, they fill your senses, leaving little room for worry or despair. But down under that sea of clouds is a city, a nation, a world in turmoil. On those days when it seems the chaos will never end, when it seems the sun is surely setting on the great nation we once knew, I try to remind myself that the sun also rises.

Stensland is a gifted photographer. But nature provides the spectacular subject matter. We’re lucky to have both in Rocky Mountain National Park.
