Capitol Creek Road

Capitol Creek Road takes you through some amazing aspen groves and along some beautiful farmland in the Maroon Bells Snowmass Wilderness and at the end of the road are some amazing view of Capitol Peak. This past fall tour the aspen colors were amazing, but rain and fog didn’t make for a great view of Capitol Peak. The road turns in to a single track dirt trails enough for a single vehicle to pass and with the rain made for a very slick trail this year so much so that we had to stop at the first clearing. The Suburban just wouldn’t make it up to the 2nd clearing.

The road was lined with golden aspen leaves and made for a great scene that we had to stop can capture. Her is my image of Capitol Creek Road. The road was a serene and quiet with an aspen leaves slowly falling off the trees onto the ground.
