July 2015: Telluride Valley, Colorado

“There is something magical about the San Juan Mountains that I’ve never experienced anywhere else.”

From the photographer …

Jaelyn Wolf

Up until recently, Telluride has been one of the only places that ever felt like home. There is something magical about the San Juan Mountains that I’ve never experienced anywhere else.

This spot is near my house and I spend quite a bit of time roaming around and taking photos of the valley. During the summer and fall we get afternoon showers that bring in the most incredible clouds and light.

It was one of the first times it snowed during the fall and this particular evening was really special. It had snowed the night before, the Aspen trees were just starting to turn, and a storm had just ended — it was one of those moments that I felt lucky to witness and capture.

Jaelyn is a photographer, artist, adventurer, adrenaline junkie, and mountain-lover based out of Colorado. She can usually be found adventuring in the mountains or desert.
