San Juan Mountains 2015-09

November 01, 2015  •  1 Comment

A trip to the San Juan Mountains to view and photograph the fall color in the high country has become an annual pilgrimage for me, and this year’s trip was very productive.

In addition to many great fall displays, this trip included an opportunity to photograph the total eclipse of the Supermoon.  To read about that experience, please click here.

This trip started in the Elk Mountains at McClure Pass and continued south through the West Elk range to the famous aspen groves of Kebler Pass

I camped at Lost Lake campground and watched as a small fox caught his dinner then curled up for a nap.
