Gallery Some of us are twisted against ourselves by the harsh seasons, yet we expand upward and outward in triumph. A stand of trees paints its way up a drainage west of Meeteetse, Wyoming in early October. Not every photo needs a caption. Sometimes you just gotta let trees speak for themselves. A calm evening in late September allows for reflection at Hidden Lakes, southwest of Walden, Colorado. A stand of aspen clings to its last leaves that catch the first rays of an October sun in the Flat Tops Mountains in Colorado. Winter descends on the barren slopes as the valleys cling to life in a final surge of color in Colorado State Forest State Park.
