Having been in New York City all last week, I jetted back to Colorado on Saturday and then quickly unpacked and packed and headed for Crested Butte, Colorado and met up with Ryan Wright and Casey Shipley. It was about a 4 and 1/2 hour drive down from Denver and was hoping to make it to Kebler Pass for sunset. I arrived to the overlook just as the sun was setting illuminating the trees. It was a little hazy so we didn’t get the alpen glow I was hoping for, but the fall colors of the aspens were spectacular. Kebler Pass is so full of color and one of the reasons I love the Colorado Southwest Mountains this time of year.
Kebler Pass is has the largest aspen stand in the world. All the trees you see in this are one big living organism and all inter-connected. I captured this panorama of Kebler Pass. This small image in this blog post doesn’t do it justice. Click on the image for the Lightbox view.
