Sunsets at Independence Pass

Colorado Sunsets Ain't Too Shabby
Pretty much anywhere in Colorado's mountains is a good spot to enjoy and photograph a sunset. One place I particularly enjoy is Independence Pass, accessed from Highway 82 between Twin Lakes and Aspen. On this page are my sunset images over the years. Enjoy!

My latest outing was with Mark Shaw of Buena Vista. The top three images are mine, but then you'll see what a skilled photographer Mark from the fourth picture. We stood mostly by the pool of water near the road.

Beautiful sunset colors in the sky.
Sunset Independence Pass sits at 12,095 feet above sea level and is part of Colorado's Continental Divide. It seperates the towns of Aspen, Basalt, Carbondale (west) from Twin Lakes and Leadville (east). Highway 82 at Independence Pass is only open for vehicular traffic from approximately Memorial Day weekend to the first snowfall in mid-October.
