My husband, Frank, and I took an amazing road trip through Colorado this fall. We were very fortunate to be there just as the colors of the aspens were turning a beautiful shade of gold. We visited quite a number of places in Colorado and loved them all! One of the highlights from a photography standpoint was the Rocky National Park, where I was able to get a close-up photograph of a majestic elk. We were there during elk rutting season, so we lucked out by seeing quite a few elk. Another huge highlight from a photography standpoint was the "Million Dollar Highway" between Silverton and Ouray. Every single second of the drive was filled with expressions of awe and wonder. And, of course, there were many stops along to way to take photographs. If you ever visit Colorado in the fall, this stretch of road is a "must do." The colors are amazing and the views are absolutely breathtaking. Another very interesting place we visited was the Great Sand Dunes National Park and Reserve. It is a very interesting and beautiful place as well. We also visited Aspen, which is a great place in the fall to walk around and explore. There are some amazing restaurants in Aspen! We also visited Vail, which is beautiful and fun. We happened to be there during Octoberfest, which was a lot of fun. In addition, we visited Telluride and found the most amazing photography gallery there (which I could have stayed in forever). In a nutshell, Colorado is magnificent and being there in the fall with the fall colors was splendid!! I hope you enjoy the photographs below. Please feel free to leave comments or ask any questions.
