Morning photo: Last few days of summer

And so it ends …

Buffalo Mountain, Gore Range, Collorado.

SUMMIT COUNTY — With the equinox just a couple of days away, summer is struggling to hang on. Mornings are crisp, feeling more of autumn, yet if you close your eyes in the bright afternoon sunlight, the warmth is still there. Tuesday evening, the seasons collided, as afternoon thunderstorms built above rapidly changing aspen leaves. As the sun dropped behind the Gore Range, the clouds quickly fell apart, only to reveal another dusting of snow on the high peaks along the Divide. Here’s what it looked like in the Meadow Creek wetlands, near Frisco. Click on the images to see larger versions.

Clearing skies.

Snow on high.

  1. The unspoiled beauty of Colorado on the cusp, a treat to go with that first cup of the day.
