The first light of day touches the Arkansas River near its headwaters high in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. On this morning (and barely visible in the photo), deer also slowly appeared in my frame as the mists began to lift.
Under the BLM’s Eastern Colorado Resource Management Plan, the section of river seen here falls into the Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area. The distant hills belong to San Isabel National Forest and the BLM’s Royal Gorge resource management planning area.
