I've been lucky enough to get out into the mountains some during the past few weeks just as the aspens reached the height of color.
I was able to walk along the Colorado River kicking up dead cottonwood leaves.
And hike in a rain of golden aspen leaves. Living in a pine forest I don't get to rake and play in the leaves like I did growing up. So, in a way, I was a kid again.
I've been enjoying it because it will not last long. Sure enough, I woke up this morning to snow. Sigh.
