Mesa Lake at Sunset 708-2
Mesa Lake, Colorado
With the sun setting in the west, the last light of a summer evening spreads across Mesa Lake and the Grand Mesa in western Colorado. This image was taken after a long drive from Grand Junction to the Grand Mesa National Forest, then a shorter drive on an unmakred dirt road, and finally a hike (no trail) up a steep slope, over snow and fallen logs, to reach the top of this boulder field. The effort was worth it, as this amazing landscape opened up through the pine trees. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
