Crystal Gristmill von Jeanine Leech Über Flickr: Marble, Colorado
It is quite the adventure to get to this remote location. Accessible by 4x4 Jeep my friend Perri expertly drove us up the very rough 5 mile mountain trial to the mill. I left Pittsburgh early that morning and drove straight from Denver to meet Perri (in Carbondale) and then up the mountain tail to the mill. Photographed for a about an hour or so and made the journey back down the mountain and on to our hotel in Crested Butte. It was a very long travel day but provided a good photo op to start the trip.
Enjoy and comments are welcome.
“The mountains join in with the aspens, each sporting its own version of the fall colors! Seen along Ophir Pass road. This is some high country - that ridge is over 13,000 feet, and the town of Telluride sits in the valley on the other side.”
