Erik Olson enjoying summertime in the mountains in Colorado. Most summer skiing destinations are scenic, but usually located in high alpine areas with little vegetation or plants nearby. Woodward Copper is only part way up the mountain and has a backdrop with a little bit of everything. Green aspens, darker pine trees and bare mountain tops all make up the views next to Interstate 70 at the base of Vail Pass.
