velvia

Sunset from the south rim of the Chisos Mountains. Still one of the cooler places I’ve backpacked to, the view from here is endless as you gaze across the border into the mountains of Mexico.

“Kebler Pass”

A valley of endless golden aspen under the snow dusted Beckwith Peaks.  This is my little secret place I like to venture off the main road of Kebler Pass, where I can always have this view to myself.  I make sure to walk down this trail every autumn to watch a sunset.

This was one of the highlights from my travels this autumn.  I found this spot a couple hours before sunset and figured I’d set up and wait for light.  I had the place all to myself, but It was mostly cloudy out so I didn’t know what to expect.  After a while of waiting the sky started dumping rain on me, but I put on the rain gear and enjoyed the solitude.  Right as the rain was getting to its strongest, I noticed the sky brightening up so I had a glimmer of hope that something would happen.  Then suddenly a double rainbow appeared and stayed incredibly brilliant for almost 5 minutes!  I watched the light come and go on the aspens and found this to be the perfect time to take the shot.
