As you start the climb up the east side of Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mountain National Park, there is a little turn off to this spot. As it is at a higher elevation than the Estes Park valley, this area serves as a bit of a harbinger of the change in colors to come to lower spots in the weeks that follow.
This past Saturday I headed up that way in search of some Colorado gold and while it wasn’t abundant, there was enough yellow aspen to drive home the point that autumn is here. Throw in those crazy, deep blue skies and the moon and there were some nice scenes to capture.
