If you’re looking for a great spot to take some fall photos, head up Boreas Road about .2 miles, and turn off on your first right, before you head up the large hill. Here lies a small parking lot and a nice mountain scene for photos. There are a few old mining relics, a cabin, and an abundance of beautiful aspen trees.

During a winter’s night you can head up here and get some great time lapse shots of the snowcats grooming the slopes.

Make sure to bring your camera or just be an epic iphone photographer to get some great shots. If you feel more adventurous, head to the top of the peak, where you can see Copper Mountain and other great Coloradan peaks.

The photo opportunities are great from the second you get off the Kensho Chairlift – but for even more breathtaking photos, hike directly up from the top of the lift and find unobstructed views no matter where you aim your camera.
