fall colors

Every year during the last week of September and first couple of weeks of October, the leaves in Colorado change to a shade of yellow that is almost fluorescent. For the last few years James and I had one specific spot we’d drive to and park, then wander around in the Aspen groves, taking fun pictures (like the one we used for our Christmas card) while soaking in the beauty of fall in Colorado. This year we decided to try something different. We found a great hike on Mt. Evans that lead us to one of the most amazing Aspen groves I’ve ever seen. There was even a creek that James took a dip in, twice. Growing up in California I never really experienced fall until I moved to Colorado. Nine years later I am still in complete awe of the vivid colors that signal the changing of the seasons.

  1. Oh this makes me miss home! The Bear Peak hike in Rocky Mountain National is also excellent for leaf peeping.
