Brief Directions: Take I-70 to georgetown and follow Guanella Pass Road to the top of the pass. Usually have to hike through the willows. What I usually do is just stop and listen for a soft clucking sound. Also watch for movement. They blend in really well.
Best Season: Autumn
Description: Catching the ptarmigan between their summer and winter phase, especially combined with the changing fall colors, really makes for nice color images.
