Photographer's Note

Looking down towards Leadville, which is covered in clouds, from Mt. Elbert. Mt. Elbert is Colorado's highest mountain at 14,433 feet. Located in the White River National Forest there are multiple routes up, this photo was taken from the Eastern approach, the trailhead was near Twin Lakes. Like all high mountains the weather can change quickly. We first hiked in the cold through the layer of clouds into the sun. Later in the day near the summit a storm moved through, pelting us with rain and then snow. Fortunately the summit was perfectly clear (though still cold enough to warrant coats.)
