Sneffels Range, Uncompahgre National Forest, Colorado


Sunset hues slice across the Sneffels Range of the San Juan Mountains. Scrub oak, aspen, and wild rose paint the foothills with red and gold at the peak of autumn. I camped for many days in this area after a snowstorm, waiting for a few minutes of dramatic interaction between the clouds and sunset while there was still snow in the mountains, but the trees had not yet lost their leaves.
