A note about the photograph appearing at the top of this web page

The photograph was taken by Russ Shugart, a long-time member of CDPS. Photographing Colorado’s dramatic scenery is his passion. The photograph above is the result of five years’ worth of his revisiting the same location for just the right shot. It was taken off County Road 7 west of Ridgway, Colorado, near the Dallas Divide, on a day in October. For more information about his photography, contact the CDPS Public Information Officer at
