Colorado’s San Juan Mountains are a part of the Rocky Mountains, located in the southwestern portion of the state. Within the San Juan’s there are ranges with their own names such as; the Sneffels Range, the Needle Mountains, the La Garita Mountains, the San Miguel Mountains, and the La Platas, to name a few. The San Juans also include the Cimarron Range, which is the topic of this post. The Cimarrons are distinctly shaped mountains including Chimney Rock, Courthouse Mountain, The Turrets and Coxcomb … all pictured here. In addition to the distinct shapes, the range is unique because it runs from south to north, tapering off along the Cimarron Ridge at the north end. From home its east facing alignment offers brilliant sunrise mornings and evenings filled with alpenglow surprises. Here are a few of those magical moments, captured from our property and other not so distant vantage points.
Colorful foliage is beginning to put on its beautiful autumn show here. That will keep me busy for the next several weeks … shooting, processing and of course, last but not least, posting!
