Allenspark Autumn

Ski Road 107 - Allenspark, Colorado

Allenspark and Meeker Park are small towns on old highway 7 out of Estes Park ..

This is along the road to one of my favorite less populated trails .. the St. Vrain Mountain Trail .. this trail winds through the Indian Peaks Wilderness and Rocky Mountain National Park .. but is one of a number trails that begin outside of the Park and then wind into it.

I had never caught this area in autumn .. it has some giant stands of wonderful trees .. that I keep hitting in Spring .. This year I got a few tantalizing tastes .. Andrew decided he was not going to hike up the trail this day (and there was no way I was going to change his mind.. see intro) .. and as fate would have it .. it did turn out fine for photography .. we drove down the mountain a little further to the Wild Basin Area of the park .. where Andrew's mood had changed .. we had a great day .. and I caught this shot of Copeland Falls. And the weather had turned nasty .. it would have been horrid way up here.
