New discovery ▲

Lindagrace Hickey of Littleton submitted this photo online of the beautiful fall colors over Boreas Pass near Breckenridge. “Each year, I enjoy traveling off the beaten path during Colorado’s “Gold Rush” in search of new mountain passes to explore,” Hickey told EnCompass. “I had never traveled beyond Como, off 285, over Boreas Pass. The roads were deeply rutted, and passage was slow. But the views were spectacular!” Her camera: Leica V-LUX 1. Member since: 1970

Pancakes anyone? ▼

Ginny Gelbach of Denver (pictured) submitted this photo online of an annual fall hike her and her family take to the Pancake Rocks near Cripple Creek. “I was hiking with my daughter, Alison, my grandson, Emmet, and their dog, Murphy,” Gelbach told EnCompass. “We carried a stove, utensils, and all the fixings to make real pancakes once we made it to the rocks—which really do look like a stack of pancakes. It was a beautiful day with some sprinkles thrown in.” Her camera: iPhone 6. Member since: 1983
