About the San Juan Skyway, one writer describes it well: "The locals call their homeland 'Colorful Colorado,' and a ride along the San Juan Skyway in the southwestern corner of the state proves the aptness of the nickname. As you climb from dusty lowlands to snowy peaks, you'll see nearly every shade in nature's kaleidoscopic palette, from creamy sands and rusty bluffs to multihued alpine meadows and the shimmering gold of aspens in autumn" (from "The Most Scenic Drives in America").
Some of that "shimmering gold" is shown in this image. The spectacular Blue Lakes Trail is located in the San Juan Mountains' Mount Sneffels Wilderness Area. On a bracing Colorado fall day just begging for a hike, this photo was made not far from the trailhead. That's Cirque Mountain (if I'm not mistaken) in the Sneffels Range up ahead, with the great lady herself - Mount Sneffels - barely visible through the trees.
