SEASONS

Just past Fremont Lake overlook is Fremont Peak overlook. Fremont Peak on the continental divide and some 12 miles distant, glows beckoningly just before sunset in the late summer and early fall. Named for American explorer John C. Fremont who climbed the peak with Charles Preuss and Johnny Janisse on August 13 to August 15, 1842. This paved road is open all year long, but the area is most photogenic in late summer or early fall.

TIMES

The hour just before sunset, on a partly cloudy day is the best time for this shot. The shot above was taken at the equivalent of a 70mm focal length lens on a full frame camera.
