We took the scenic route from Denver to Aspen through Independence Pass and the Continental Divide. The divide is a designated line that divides the Pacific and Atlantic oceans watersheds. So from the top of the divide water will flow either to the east or the west.
I have been a slacker this past month and a half - not for the lack of photos - just because. I've had two trips in that time, Colorado and New Hampshire so there are lots of photos to sift through. So begins Colorado. These were taken the first day driving from Denver to Aspen/Snowmass. The Aspen trees were just turning their brilliant yellow.
