A little duality in the title there… We’re supposed to get a big storm in the next few days, signaling the “last (of) fall,” and the beginning of winter. And, this photo was taken a year ago, “last fall” when I was out here in Aspen to interview and find housing.

I was on the East Snowmass Trail, after starting on the Ditch Trail at the Campground Parking Lot. This view is looking up at the back side of Snowmass Ski Area. In fact, the ridgeline in this photo is where I hiked up in August of this year, along Sneaky’s ski run (see my earlier posts “Old Beer, Flora” and “Summer Ski Jump”). I loved the varied red, grey, and tan colors of the cliffs above, along with the bright yellow aspen trees and green conifers below.
