IMAGE COLLECTIONS     Upper Roaring Fork River Near Aspen, CO

Arriving at the Grottos area of the Upper Roaring Fork near Aspen Colorado, my first steps are usually towards the cataracts and the ice caves. On this morning I headed to the peaceful section of the river instead. The early morning sun was highlighting the river above and the rock outcrops that border. After several shots I turned to find the trees along the bank casting their color into the river.

I have photographed the Ice Caves near the Grottos of the upper Roaring Fork from above several times. I found interesting images mixing light with the rock and vegetation and even the entrance into the caves from the upstream side. Until this trip, I had never ventured inside. I don’t know why.
