Golden Aspens, Elk Mountains

Kebler Pass Road (Gunnison County Road 12), Gunnison National Forest, CO, 9/25/2011

On a beautiful early autumn day I traveled Kebler Pass Road, exploring Gunnison National Forest and the Elk Mountains of Colorado on my way east to the town of Crested Butte. I arrived at a clearing between Snowline Ridge and Trout Creek and was captivated by this gorgeous view to the northeast, rich with autumn colors and crowned by bright cumulus clouds. The aspens were aglow in their fall golden glory! We're standing at an elevation of 8,850 feet above sea level, looking toward Mt. Justice (elevation 11,760 feet) at the extreme left of the photograph and Purple Mountain (12,958 feet) at the extreme right. This lovely autumn scene is just the sort of landscape I was hoping to encounter on my visit to Colorado!
