Golden Path
It was late fall in the Colorado Rockies and I was spending a few days exploring a section of the backcountry I had never visited before. Setting up an early camp off an almost-hidden side road along Kebler Pass, I found myself with an afternoon to meander among the surrounding aspens. I stumbled upon an old path that cut its way through the dense groves and as I wandered down this trail the sun pierced through an opening in the afternoon clouds and set the canopy of golden aspen leaves aglow.
