Talents are best nurtured in solitude, but character is best formed in the stormy billows of the world.
--Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) German author.
Pictured here are scenes from a stormy day in beautiful Westcliffe, CO. I was just happy the views of the mountains weren't completely shrouded in clouds the day we visited. Pictured here are Hope Lutheran Church (top, built in 1917), a view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains from the Bluff and Summit Park on the south of town, and the historic Westcliffe School (below, built in 1891) which now serves as the Westcliffe Museum. Street view here. A rainy day in Westcliffe is better than a sunny day most anywhere else.
