Grand Lake, the largest natural lake in Colorado, USA, (at 8,369 feet = 2,551 m), shimmers in the distance under cloudy skies. Also viewed here, is the tundra and scree terrain at Pawnee Pass, (12,542 ft = 3,823 m), on the Rocky Mountain Continental Divide in the Indian Peaks Wilderness Area.
The waters of Pine Creek cut through a high mountain meadow below the scree slopes of Cathedral Peak in the Maroon Bells -Snowmass Wilderness Area near Aspen, Colorado, USA. The cooler autumn weather has turned the alpine willow shrubs and grasses a golden yellow.
