Golden Grandeur-Golden Aspens Beneath Marcellina Mountain

The scenery along County Road 12 west of Crested Butte, Colorado is always exceptional but in the fall, it is out of this world. Miles upon miles of golden aspens are mixed in with many grand views of the West Elk Mountains. Marcellina Mountain is a prominent peak which is visible from many locations along […]

Autumn Harmony-Golden Aspen Grove in Colorado

One of my favorite areas to photograph in Colorado is around Crested Butte, especially in autumn. Driving west on Highway 12 will take you over Kenosha Pass and through miles and miles of aspen trees. In the fall, it is quite the site to see. Early in October I spent a couple of days in […]

Time to Shine-Marcellina Mountain in Springtime

The weather was gorgeous and there […]

Evening Finale-Sunset Panorama from Crested Butte
