FRISCO —Saturday morning, with no school breakfast and lunch to make, I took a little extra time to visit one of my favorite Gore Range overlooks along Ute Pass Road. Along with a great view, the shale slopes of the Williams Fork Range are great habitat for ancient Douglas firs, a relatively rare tree in our environment, so it’s always good to hang out in the presence of these centuries-old giants. Playing with three cameras, I managed to put together a decent set of wintry Gore Range scenes.
Edited to emphasize the contrast between the sunlit peaks and the shady valleys.
