  • We drove almost all of the San Juan Scenic Byway in mid September. The aspen trees were all out in splendid yellow and orange display. Absolutely the prettiest fall color display I have seen anywhere!...  more »

  • Beautiful mountains full of some of the most prominent and rugged looking peaks in Colorado. Great hiking. Blue lakes. Does seem in some parts a bit more developed than other mountain ranged but Colorado in general is more developed because of the mining history. Great place to see Aspens. Go to Last Dollar Road for excellent views of the mountains and aspens in the foothills. It is gravel but much of it is fine for 2-wheel drive cars (when it's not snowy)
  • Sometimes called the Switzerland of America, this mountain range produces great photography throughout the year, but I try to be there every year in late July. The mountain basins above 10,000 feet are pockets of spring with alpine wildflowers galore. Add streams and picturesque waterfalls, along with rufous hummingbirds and furry little pikas and marmots, and you have a lot of exposures at your fingertips.
