Photographer's Note

Autumn Water

Mill Creek Basin Trail .. Hollowell Park .. Rocky Mountain National Park.

I have posted a number of images from this place .. see the autumn theme to the left ..

It is one of my favorite haunts in any season but especially in autumn ..
The trail following bumbling little Mill Creek is surrounded by thick stands of aspen .. The aspen took over this swatch of forest when the earlier trees were logged to build many of the historic buildings in Estes Park .. In autumn you can spot the trail half way across the park as a belt of gold on the distant hillside ..

It is also one of the most quiet trails in the park .. there is no real destination on it .. it is part of a connecting system that joins some of the more popular trails ..
