Autumn's Glory in the Rockies

Back to our world at home for today because I am overwhelmed with the beauty. This is our playground, turning into a kaleidoscope of autumn colors.

It is a glorious sight. I love being able to see that many aspens are still green so we still have lots of autumn ahead of us. I'm looking right past that snow in the forecast in the next few days!

Today was a day to be savored. It was warm enough for a sleeveless top and shorts. The sun felt soft but warm on my shoulders. Shyla was a joy to have along for part of my bike ride. She seemed as happy as I was, taking flying leaps whenever she could.

In a sense, those golden and reddish leaves are our flowers for this time of year. They make us smile and want this season to never end.

Shyla's smile summed it all up.
We will savor every last warm and sunny day that this season will give us.

  3. So beautiful. We are a week or so behind you. And our aspens had a rough time this year so I am curious to see how they handle the fall.

  10. Leaves against the sky, gorgeous. Way down below, are there homes there amongst the trees? And do you bike to the small lake or what we might call a tarn in the second photo/ Lap up all the golden beauty and warm days, we have sunshine, a misty start earlier on, and all is well with both of us.( well, about 75% ).

    1. Yes, we do visit that body of water. It's actually a reservoir. We can hike or bike to it! Glad that things are well with you. 75% is pretty good ;) Now let's go for 100%!
