Late Autumn in the Sangre de Cristos

The family and I took a trip down to the lot over the 4 day weekend.  I decided to take a couple afternoons off and go for a couple sunset photography drives.  It was a pleasant surprise to find some pockets of fall colors along the "Highway of Legends" and the Huerfano River Valley.  Here are a few images from the trip:

I drove up to the Lily Lake trailhead to see how the aspens were doing up higher.  Nope... Not a leaf on the trees, but the sunset was awsome over Blanca Peak and Ellingwood Point (two Colorado 14ers):
