Fall Foliage Near Cottonwood Pass (Colorado)
Cloudy Day, Picture Of Road With Fall Colors On The Side

Autumn Scenery
I have an interesting story about the weather on the day of this picture near Cottonwood Pass. From the town of Buena Vista, I noticed large gray clouds over the mountains that surround the canyon leading to Cottonwood Pass.

As I was driving west, the weather became increasingly dreary and gray, but I still managed to get some nice photos of the fall foliage. Pretty soon as I traveled, it began to rain ... which became sleet ... which became snow near the summit! It was surreal: Just a few miles down the road I was enjoying the wonders of fall and there I was amidst a snowstorm!

This specific photo was taken while driving downhill (eastbound) on Chaffee County Road 306, inside Cottonwood Canyon.
