Spotty light breaking through quickly building clouds illuminates autumn foliage and Colorado's 14,158 foot (4,315 m) high Mount Sneffels. Located in the Mount Sneffels Wilderness of the Uncompahgre National Forest, the mountain is notable for its great vertical relief, rising 7,200 feet above the relatively flat land just 6 miles to the northeast.
