Mount Sneffels Autumn Evening 11

San Juan Mountains

As the sun set in the west, the landscape and golden aspen took on an eerie orange hue for a few minutes before the sky faded into evening. This fall photograph shows the ethereal colors of an unforgettable evening. In the distance, Moiunt Sneffels rises 14,157’ into the cold October sky.
