Aspens - Yellow Fall Foliage At Cottonwood Lake, Colorado
September 22, 2007 - This morning I visited Cottonwood Lake in the Sawatch Range,
a small, high altitude lake nestled in the Rocky Mountains. The aspens are not
at their peak colors, but it was very scenic nonetheless.
Here is a view of pretty yellow aspens on Chaffee County Road 304.
Two photos of Cottonwood Lake.
A hillside with yellow and orange aspen foliage.
Another pretty aspen grove.
I hiked in the Cottonwood Lake Campground, which
is now closed for the season. Lots of pretty foliage around.
Aspens reflecting brightly.
I climbed up a hillside to capture
this view of the lake. I was directly facing the sun.
