Mount Toll is an iconic peak in the Indian Peaks Wilderness. Usually you see this peak from a completely different angle. In September I decided to hike up to try and see a glacial lake that is clear on the topo map above the well-known Blue Lake and made it over the moraine in time. I wrote about that hike before here and here and there is a gallery that has images from it here. Going through my library looking for some images to test print on some nice paper I got from Santa, I came across the below image that I had somehow ignored first time around but that really struck my eye.

Quite a while ago (the 28th of September) I went on a nice fall color hike with the cmc photography section. There was fresh snow on the ground and the fall colors were peak this day so it was just glorious. We hiked along the Eaglesmere Laker trail mostly as there some great aspen groves along it. Highly recommended if you want to catch fall color next year.
Looking up. The color was just radiant with the crowns of the tree sunlit, but the ground not.

The glow. The sunstar might be hard to see in this small image but it has a full 18 points! I also love the oranges in the leaves.

I have some more nice images to share from this trip but for now 7 images will have to do ;-). I hope you enjoyed them. I certainly enjoyed taking them. Check out the Facebook and Flickr links to explore some more.
