Autumn in the Rockies

 Last Sunday afternoon was overcast and gray, but we decided to take a short drive up in the mountains to see the aspens anyway.
 The brilliant gold is a sharp contrast to the dark green of the evergreens. Just breathtaking.
 I especially enjoyed this scene with the farm pond and the barbed-wire fence... and the little bit of blue sky peeking through the clouds.
 And, of course, we had to pose in front of the leaves!
 This one is just to embarrass the kids. Because that's what we do.
 What a privilege to live so near such beauty. It's almost worth putting up with city life. Almost.
Wonder if I can talk the man into going again this Sunday. Maybe the skies will be clear? You never can tell about Colorado weather.
