Photos Of Turning Autumn Leaves In Colorado - September 24, 2008

Cottonwood Pass Road I spent some time this afternoon along Chaffee County Road 306 ("Cottonwood Pass Road"). The autumn leaves are coming close to their peak viewing time. I was estimate seven days from today being the best time to take in all of these dazzling autumn colors!
I wandered into the woods and spotted an old structure from the historic settlement era.
