After leaving the Aspen, Co area, a
friend and I were making the drive
to Ridgway. McClure pass has
historically been highly regarded
for it's fall color, but in recent years
some of the aspen have died of the
Sudden Aspen Decline disease.
My expectations were low. As we
approached the pass driving along
the Crystal River, I could see the
north facing side still had a nice
mix of color. We drove up the pass
and while coming around a bend, I
saw this scene. The mostly cloudy
skies opened a few small windows,
back lighting some of the aspen
stands. I parked my Jeep, found
my spot, and waited for the magic
to unfold.
