September 17, 2006 - This morning I was on the east side of Monarch Pass in Chaffee County to photograph its current fall foliage. The mountain scenery was impressive. You can definitely notice some fall foliage happening below timberline on Mount Ouray and Chipeta Peak (top) and Mt. Shavano (bottom) respectively.
