Fall colors in Raggeds Wilderness on the Grand Mesa Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests, Colorado.  Raggeds Wilderness covers 65,443 acres spanning Gunnison and White River National Forests. Elevations range from 7,000 to about 13,000 feet. Prominent rocky slopes point upward to a serrated ridge which gives Raggeds Wilderness its name. Ragged Mountain in the northern half rises to 12,094 feet, but other scenic peaks in the area summit higher. (Photo courtesy of Martin Swett) #fallcolors #autumn #fallfoliage #colorado
