Colorado sure looks different when you look at it from outer space.

That's kind of how it is in life. Perspective changes so much the farther away you are from something or a situation.

Everybody knows that much of Colorado is very beautiful, but it sure doesn't look very pretty when viewed from outer space.

Something else I noticed is that a mountain sure looks bigger when you are standing at the base of it than it does when you are looking at it from up above. The mountain is just as large either way, but the perception of how big it is definitely changes based upon your vantage point.

There are probably plenty of life lessons we could learn from this if we want to. If not, we can still enjoy the view of our great state from a completely different and interesting perspective.
