    • That is a Forest Service access road now. Many years ago there was a mine up there. The road is now closed to motor vehicles just past where the photo was taken unless there is an emergency.

    • It’s the mountains, Robin. The only way you can go wrong in photographing them is to not go there!

    • Thanks Sandy! The aspens just beg to be photographed when they are in color.

  9. I’m a big fan of aspens, and these look especially nice in their bright fall colors.

    • I was especially pleased to see these because last year we had hardly any aspen colors at all due to the early deep freeze that we had. Maybe things are getting back to normal.

    Love the photo.

    • It’s great! This road is now closed for the winter because of the snow level. Still hikeable for awhile though.
