While camping near Grants, NM, we drove along some back roads up Mt. Taylor (elevation is about 11,000 feet). On the way up, we came across this glorious stand of aspens that has already changed color. I love the above image of the little dirt road forming a path thru the trees.
The above image is one of my favorites. I've always loved images of the barks of the trees with the tree leaves in the background. The golden color of the leaves really enhanced it.
Here's the aspen stand that we drove thru. We were pretty much at the top of Mt. Taylor and the day provided perfect weather for a lovely fall type photo.
