COLORADO: Cottonwood Pass & Buena Vista

After a few weeks of being cooped up in the house with a broken leg, I was so glad a friend called to take a ride into the mountains to see the turning of the aspen trees.

We ended up at Cottonwood Pass on the Continental Divide. Here I am with my broken leg!

At one of our photo stops near the end of the day, another photographer we met along the roadside invited us to visit the fishing lodge he was staying at.

It made for a nice peaceful finish to our day.
