I have been in Oregon most of this week, and will be there all of next week scouting the Oregon Coast with Jeff Clow for an upcoming photo tour (yet to be scheduled). There are so many places across the US that are simply beautiful in their own right. Just before I headed out on the road, I accidentally came across this photo that I took when I was in Colorado a couple of years ago on a photo tour with Rick Louie and Chris Nitz. Talk about a beautiful location. We had headed out from Telluride and headed through and over the San Juan Mountains. We stopped at the top of Ophir Pass and this view just captivated me and the foliage was peaking. It was just one of the many amazing scenes that we saw that day. After crossing the San Juan's, we jumped on the Million Dollar Highway (It is aptly named) for further exploration.
