Early Winter in Clinton Gulch

“Early Winter in Clinton Gulch”
Photo of the Week #33, selected in December, 2019

The reservoir behind the Clinton Gulch Dam near Copper Mountain and Breckenridge in Colorado has always been photogenic. Fortunately, I was never scared off by a few inches of snow in this part of the state and was eventually rewarded. I was astounded by this beautiful reflected image of the alpine backdrop of the Tenmile Range that includes Fletcher Mountain, Wheeler Mountain, Clinton Peak, and Bartlett Mountain, along with a nice layer of contrasting snow.

Easily accessed along the Top of the Rockies Byway (CO Highway 91), just 20 minutes northeast of Leadville, the reservoir is a very popular tourist stop. It’s mountain trail is about 2.5 miles round-trip and sits between 10,986′ and 11,125′ of elevation.
