Snow In The Mountains (Photos In Colorado - December 2, 2007)
I wandered about the snowy terrain of the Collegiate Peaks,
the mountain range west of where I live in Buena Vista and came up with some nice snow photos.
You can see this same general view of this road during autumn
here (5th photo).
I walked among aspens in six to twelve inches of snow on the ground.
Cottonwood Creek, the main waterway that runs through the
particular canyon I was in, had some pretty snow on its sides. I am going to put more
effort in the future in capturing nicer pictures of snowy mountain creeks.
At another point in the stream, beaver dam slow
the creek's pace. I really liked the brightness of the white snow in these shots!
Last but not least, I thought I would display
two photos that show the conditions of the road. (Cottonwood Pass Road)
In that top photo, ice and packed snow covered this long stretch of road.
Mt. Yale (alt. 14,197 feet) stands tall with this same road covered in white.
