I love our summer trips so I tried not to let my injuries prevent me from enjoying the incredible beauty. This was another autumn scene from a bike ride. I was at about 11,000' and those mountains on the horizon were even higher than that!
The flowers were finished blooming up so high but the leaves left behind were colorful!
I love routes that spend time out in the open of the alpine (do you see my trail in the distance?)...
... but also dive into the forest at lower elevations. A few forest flowers were still blooming, much to my delight!
Thanks to our friend Rosy for hosting the Flower Friday blog hop!
