This Colorado fall color image depicts the ghost town of Ironton during peak fall colors. Ironton was a major transportation junction between Red Mountain and Ouray in addition to having some of its own mines. Ironton had a peak population of over 1000 and had two trains arriving daily from Silverton. Shooting this historic location in the early morning provided the best lighting for this scene.
