Sunset With Clouds At Cottonwood Pass (Photos - August 18, 2007)

Sunset My visit to Cottonwood Pass to view the sunset was more on the spontaneous side. I was talking on the phone with my friend Chris in Buena Vista, and wanting to catch up with him, I thought making the very scenic drive west into the mountains would be a good way to talk as we drove.

The sunset was hardly impressive, at least compared to the "color show" I enjoyed one week earlier on August 11, but it was still nice as always to be up there. The adjacent photo shows a large cloud covering the sun.

The sun sets. Those dark grayish clouds really put a damper on things. Ah well! :)
Cottonwood Pass Tundra Pool I ran down to the tundra pool on the Gunnison County side of the divide. The reflection of the clouds on the small pond was nice!
