Independence Pass (September 2010)

Aspen trees, in honor of autumn, and in anticipation of my mountain jaunt tomorrow.

Taken on a day-trip up Independence Pass in the fall of 2010, prior to a good friend moving back to California. She and I spent a couple of months in 2010 going on photographic road trips so she could get as much of Colorado in her sights before leaving. ¬†This trip took us over Kenosha Pass, through Leadville, over Independence Pass, and back home down I-70. Tomorrow’s day trip will be over Guanella Pass (road conditions permitting), Leadville, Independence Pass, back down to Kenosha, and home. ¬†Should be a good way to celebrate the Autumn Equinox.
