From Cimarron, Colorado, head up to Owl Creek Pass along a dirt forest road. Take this road through to Ridgway, if you desire, for spectacular, non-stop vistas of fall foliage.
The giant aspen forests of western Colorado in autumn put on a spectacular display of color. I was driving up toward Owl Creek Pass in a rainstorm when I spotted this wonderful formation that is part of the Cimarron Range emerging from the mist. I waited for the rain to let up a bit and got this shot of the aspen fall colors up against the chocolate brown of the rock just as the mist dissipated enough to reveal the top of the formation.
