|Top of Ophir Pass|
When I left Silverton the first week of September there was no snow and the Aspen had only started to get their fall colors so now was the time to go back. Starting in Santa Fe with a friend who is also a photographer we left on a scouting trip to Moab. The goal was to plan a future trip for photographers leaving from the studio in Santa Fe then returning to process and make prints from the photographs using some of the processes Don teaches in his studio. Our first stop was Silverton Colorado and we arrived at the peak of the fall colors. This photo is from the top of the Ophir Pass jeep trail. On our way to Moab we will take Last Dollar Road from the Telluride Valley.
