There is something really special about being in the aspens in the fall when the leaves turn. The light in there is hard to describe, but nothing feels and looks quite like that. I took these shots along Highway 6 below The Basin. The elevation at the ski area is just a little high to have many aspens. There are a few clusters down very low in Montezuma Bowl.
After a couple hours of work this morning, I rode my bike around Lake Dillon and up to Copper Mountain. The colors around Frisco and along the bike path to Copper were especially dramatic. It was a warm, bluebird, chamber of commerce kind of day. Very, very nice.
