The Crystal Mill!   Full day Fall Color, 4x4 Adventure with American Photo Treks!

The Crystal Mill is one of the most iconic Colorado photos. If you’re a Colorado photographer your portfolio isn’t complete without a beautiful photo of the mill surrounded by fall colors.

American Photo Treks has an amazing day planned for you. We’ll begin by taking you to a great little ghost town where the buildings are set in aspens. Then it’s up the Capital Creek trail. Stopping at one great fall color scene after another. The top of Capital Creek is tough to get to, but the view is worth the trip.

Then it’s off to Marble and the 4x4 road along the Crystal River. The ride is fun and fall color photos at Beaver Pond and Lizard Lake are secret gems. The trip culminates at the spectacular Crystal Mill.

It’s a full day, full of fun, friendship and great photos.

We have years of experience with Canon, Nikon and Sony Camera systems, so we can provide in-depth assistance with your particular camera.
