A landscape photographer's tour
Keith's travels in the Colorado Rockies - September-October 2008
Aspen to OurayNot so many pics, since the weather has deteriorated a bit and it was mostly travelling today.
Cloudy at Aspen, but no snow yet :-( the weather forecast predicts it for tomorrow though :-)
We're heading off west towards Carbondale and then turning down CO133 towards Hotchkiss.
You can see that the snow line has descended. The mountain is Mt. Sophris and is over 12,000 feet.
It's a nice drive along CO133 up towards McClure pass. The road in the picture below is where we've just driven along.
The other side of the pass is a more gentle descent. Including the odd coal mine where half mile long coal trains are loaded.
I had thought of going across the Grand Mesa, but since it was solid cloud, the view might not be that great.
This is the view from the top, taken last time I was in the area (it's an 8 foot wide print)
At Delta, we turned south on US50, and then along US550 towards Ouray.
More mountains appear in the cloud...
We're heading towards that gap in the mountains.
We're stopping in Ouray for a couple of days, so tomorrow it's off to take some more photos :-)
Ouray is a nice little town, with big mountains very close by.
