KEBLER GOLD – October 1, 2015, Kebler Pass, Colorado

Linking one of Colorado’s quaint ski towns, Crested Butte, to Highway 133 near the southern end of Paonia State Park is Gunnison County Road 12, otherwise known as “Kebler Pass.” The elevation for the pass is 10,007 feet and is home to one of the Earth’s largest living organisms - an aspen grove that spans miles of this seasonal scenic byway. On the last day of my annual fall trip and before heading the opposite direction to catch my plane home, I was hoping to catch early morning light on a panoramic view staked out the evening before. The clouds and sun did not cooperate for that shot, but were perfect for diffusing the light to catch this close-up just off the road.
