We hit the peak of fall color on our drive through southwest Colorado's San Juan mountains. These pics are from Oct 4, on the drive from Durango to Ouray, with most of the pictures between Silverton and Ouray. The challenge was not finding a good picture, rather choosing from lots of good pictures to find a great picture — no matter where you looked there was tons of color. The other difficulty was the lighting, due to mostly cloudy conditions, so I had to work hard on the exposure. I highly recommend this drive in Colorado, and wish we had more time. Maybe next fall we'll take a trip just for the color, and stay overnight in the town of Ouray.
