Goose Creek Wilderness

Location Origin Story

Goose Creek lies nestled in the forested valley covered in a snow blanket. Sitting 10,600 ft. / 3,230 m high up, this is a formidable and difficult area to reach on the San Juan Mountains in the Weminuche Wilderness of the Rio Grande National Forest. Adjacent to the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail (to the left of this image) this is just south over the ridge (on the right) from Beautiful Mountain.

This area is a long way off the beaten path, with no easy way to get to it. On the right side of this photo, you can see Fisher Mountain and the edge of Antelope Park. This is prime Colorado Wilderness!

About This Photograph

This foreboding intense mountainous scene was photographed in the early evening during the month of April while Zedekiah was flying and exploring the San Juan Range of the Rocky Mountains in southern Colorado.

Image Rarity

The image was taken from a moving aircraft, as Zedekiah piloted the aircraft while simultaneously operating the camera.

Flying through inclement atmospheric conditions between storm fronts above the rugged mountains made this particularly dangerous.

Zedekiah used the ending light of the evening as a backdrop, where timing and being in the place-in-space for this scene to reveal itself was crucial to this image composition.

Lastly, it is impossible to simply walk up a trail and take the same photograph again. This image was very difficult to create, and is truly one-of-a-kind, therefore making it extremely rare.
