The rugged scenic terrain of the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area in the Roosevelt National Park of Colorado, USA, is dominated by a jagged skyline along the Continental Divide. Here, the Navajo and Apache Peaks on the ridge line stand witness to the power of glacial erosion and the passing of time. Remnants of a collapsed cornice form large icicles as the snow field above melts over a cliff face.
A hike along Pine Creek near Aspen, Colorado, USA, reveals striking views of ridge lines, rugged terrain, creeks and clear waters rushing over cascades. The yellow autumn foliage of Aspen Trees contrasts with the vivid blue Colorado skies. At the far end of the watershed, Cathedral Peak reaches into the sky.
Early morning sunlight catches the edges of a sandstone fin formation, (known as the Tower Of Babel), and lights up the autumn leaves of trees growing along the Courtroom Wash in the Arches National Park, Utah, USA.
