Photographer's Note

Taken from 11,000' of altitude, in the backcountry between Ridgeway and Telluride, Colorado, I have captured Round Rock Peak, which can deliver 30+ mile views of Colorado backcountry. Centered in the photograph you will find our vehicle, which delivered us to this aspen park, for a pristine start to an afternoon elk hunt.

Here is a Google map which is centered over this:

The truck is equidistant, between the lens and aspens on the other side. That distance is approximately 200 meters.

The Uncompahgre National Forest lies in the heart of American alpine country. It's a land of 14,000-foot peaks, fast-flowing creeks, alpine lakes, deep spruce forests, red rock gorges, and lots of black bears. It's also a land of gold.

Abandoned mine shafts and ghost towns dot the landscape, emblems of the Uncompahgre's Gold Rush past. Prospectors staked their claims in the 1800s and built up towns like Telluride that have since become wildly popular vacation destinations. The roads built by the miners now serve as major thoroughfares into the forest's vast backcountry.
