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.
