Finding beauty in beetle-killed forests
Morning scene along the shore of Dillon Reservoir.
By Bob Berwyn
SUMMIT COUNTY — A few images from the daily peregrinations along the shore of the reservoir. I usually try to assiduously avoid the clearcut areas in photos because really, who wants to see pictures of stumps. But every now and then, it’s probably a good reminder, especially with a warming climate that may very well bring additional blight to high country ecosystems.

There’s that blue stain …
Looking toward Frisco.
“Rainbow” leaves of Oregon grape.
