It's that time of year in the high country.

I wish it was fall forever though today felt like summer again, shorts weather even up in the mountains.

Today's hike was up at the Caribou Ranch Open Space, about 40-45 minutes from Boulder, and everybody and their granny who wasn't at Kenosha Pass was up here today.  And the reason why is obvious.

I took a lot of pictures.  Thankfully Jonny was tired and o.k. with all the stopping.  The trail is only 3 miles and very easy, mostly flat and smooth but it took us 1 hour 45 minutes with a stop for a snack by the creek and all the picture taking.

Still hoping to get up to Kenosha Pass in time.  Supposedly it's the best colors in like 15 years.  Though I have to say the Nederland area is looking pretty good.  We've been having unseasonably warm temps. that have made for a most excellent leaf season this year.


  1. Wow love love love the pictures!

  2. Totally. Drop. Dead. Gorgeous. It sure helps to have beautiful scenery, but one also has to know where to point the camera! Nice work, loving it!

  3. Oh wow... Stunning.

    I sure could have used some of that colour for Lucy's 52 Weeks photo this week!

  4. What fantastic pictures. Just beautiful.
