Autumn Aspens

As lovely as these photos turned out, they don't compare to the real deal.  Can you imagine that? The trees were bright yellow, the weather was perfect, and I didn't have to turn around halfway like last time!  My lung capacity for the Colorado air is getting there.  I think it's safe to say that this is the most beautiful hike I've ever experienced.

We hiked this trail only 2 weekends ago...
Now it's snowing.  Whoa.


  1. Breathtaking, I'm always a sucker for birch trees!

  2. sigh. that color yellow is magnificent. I'm so jealous of the snow!

  3. wow, looks amazing! i'd loooove to go hiking there :)

    i can't believe you're getting snow already.. before the leaves are even finished changing.. crazy!
