I parked in the lot for Flight Environments, which makes plane interiors. I couldn't help but notice how the mirror windows reflected the landscape from across the road. They were more like picture windows.

I'm still trying to figure out what the flag on the right side of the photo represents. The closest I can some is the state flag of Colorado. Perhaps the wind is blowing it so it shows backwards. Here is a photo of the Colorado flag.
|The original Flag of Colorado did not specify the size of sun and "C". As a result, many variations existed. Some contained the large "C" as on on the current flag while others wholly inscribed within the white stripe. In 1964, the Colorado government specified the size and position of the "C".

Below is a closer look at the scenes in two of the windows.

I finally got to the end of the block and walked left on a private road leading toward some vineyards on a hill. Along the way were many wildflowers and I spent a lot of time trying to capture the many flying hawks with my camera. The sky was a full as an airport, but I don't have room to show all those photos I took here.

As the sky became more ominous, I knew it was time to head back to the car. This was my view as I began to head west again. The hills you see in the distance are on the other side of Highway 101, about a seven minute drive away unless all the lights are red. That's where I found the almond trees blooming last week.

As I was almost back to the car, I saw the sun shining through the clouds, and then the drops began to hit me as I was almost to the car. I'm glad I took the walk because I saw so much I wanted to photograph. If it weren't for having my camera with me, I probably wouldn't get out to walk nearly as often.
