Photographer's Note

The sun hadn’t cleared Mingus Mountain when I started hiking the Woodchute Trail into the Woodchute Mountain Wilderness. I kept an eye on the continually lowering level of brightly illuminated trees and, as the light approached my level, I turned to face it. Being nearly level with the top of Mingus Mountain allowed me to limit the flare while the f/11 aperture provided the halo of rays when the sun appeared.

The Woodchute trail is considered difficult for two reasons. First, the trailhead is at an elevation of 7,000 feet (2,134 m) above sea level and goes up from there. The second is a very steep climb to reach the summit of Woodchute Mountain at the end of the trail. As a result, it is not heavily trafficked. I only met other hikers several hours later while on my way back to the trailhead.

If you have a high clearance vehicle, you can drive all the way to the trailhead on Forest Road 106. Otherwise you will need to start from the Potato Patch Campground about half a mile away.
