San Juan Mountains Winter 2015 - Colorado

January 30 - February 1, 2015

A quick trip to my favorite part of Colorado yielded several surprises.

My friend and I hadn't been out shooting in a while and really wanted some Colorado winter shots. After watching the forecast for quite some time, we were looking for a weekend that yield fresh snow for a quick getaway. Well, we got it. For two days we were socked in finding several closed roads. But, in the end, this is what I came away with.

Stop the car! As the fog was thick and lunch and a nap sounded good, this scene was spotted while driving down the mountain road.

I was a little hesitant to abandon the planned morning location, but I'm glad I did as this was a better vantage point of S9 and Hayden Peak. Sometimes things don't go according to plan and work out better.
