Two weeks ago we went up to the mountain for what was supposed to be "Color Sunday." But not much color. We went up again this weekend, and look at the difference! This is my favorite time of year in Colorado, when the aspens look like pure gold! The first panorama that I put together was on our way up, and the final one was of the incoming first winter storm, as we left the lake. (You can click on them to see them larger.) Predictions have it turning to winter at that elevation tonight, so all the leaves will probably be down the next time we go.
This is the aspen grove by our cabin. It's the prettiest I think we've ever seen it! Aspen trees are not individual trees; a grove of them is connected at the roots and is actually one organism.
This is the road near the cabin. Do you think this is what they mean when they say the streets of Heaven are pure gold? I'd be happy with this kind of gold!
The roof you see over the tops of the trees is our cabin.
I hope wherever you are, your autumn is as spectacular as this!
