Colorado Sunset At Cottonwood Pass

Colorado Aspens May 30, 2006 - From Buena Vista, I traveled toward Cottonwood Pass at about 7 p.m. with plans to photograph the sunset that would be happening around 8:20 p.m. With time to kill, I slowly wandered up the canyon and spend time in a pretty aspen grove.

Even when their leaves are green, there is something wonderful about the aspens of Colorado, isn't there?

Cottonwood Pass At Cottonwood Pass (elevation 12,126 feet), I waited for the "sunset show" to begin. This reminded me of the anticipation one might experience before a Fourth of July fireworks show! :)
The sunset began to have some flair at 8:05 p.m. I like this shot of the sign, which read Leaving Chaffee County.

It's so wonderful to see all that snow remaining. Memorial Day weekend is commonly considered the beginning of summer, but Colorado's mountains go by their own seasonal clock. The temperature was only about 20 degrees and the winds made it feel colder. on Facebook
