aspen trees, east snowmass creek

Snomass Creek Autumn : Prints Available

Aspen trees in various stages of gold approaching peak autumn color. The gold aspen on the ridge above East Snowmass Creek contrast nicely with the maroon rock characteristic of the Elks. 

It seems crazy that just three or so weeks ago we were backpacking in the San Juan Mountains, mid summer conditions, a warm tundra color pallette the only hint of fall coming. I made this image while we were in Aspen/Snowmass last week where the colors were peaking. We’re having one of our best autumns in years, so it’s time to chase the gold rush some more. I hope to have a colorful photo essay late next week.
