The images on these pages were captured over several days of touring the Headwaters of the Arkansas River in Southeast Colorado and the nearby passes - Monarch, Cottonwood and Independence. Whether raining or sunlit, the vistas are always enchanting and a source of wistful reverie
and painterly impressions.
