Love the red in the Aspens John, Toltec Gorge is one of a kind to boot.

I have stood where you took this photo, when the aspens are in full yellow color this place is one site to see. The year the Tent Caterpillar's took out the Aspen population It wasn't a great site to see, but it was unique still in its own way.

Still a Student,
