Aspen to Leadville | First Signs of Snow

posted in: Xperience | 0

I woke up on the morning of September 15th after a cold rainy night. Convinced that it must have snowed that night up high, we set off towards Independence Pass to take some photos of the first snow. Unfortunately, we went in the wrong direction. The snow was visible in Snowmass that morning, and the pass didn’t get covered with a nice layer of white, although we did drive through a short snow storm at the top. Regardless, it was still a beautiful day for a drive, a lunch in Leadville, and some fishing at Twin Lakes. The colors of fall are looking gorgeous on the other side of the pass.
