Whatever Weds. Fall Color in CO +2

While in CO. Fall was at peak or past it in the higher elevations and beginning in the lower ones so, after the wedding we began our vacation. First up we headed to Kenosha Pass to see the fall colors.


Layers of Color

Fast forward…we came home to a cold snap. It was pretty chilly and windy all week-end; it rained a bit in the valley and snowed in the mountains, but on Monday things really got chilly and it rained, hailed and snowed a little, and yesterday I woke up to 23 degrees (-5c) and the clouds had lifted a bit on the mountains so I could see the snow on them.

Lucky me, a flock of Canadian Geese flew by and I got the tail-end of them in this frame. They’re heading Northeast somewhere.

I’m trying a new theme for the blog to see if my images look better than in the previous theme. I think it’s better. What do you think?

  1. Hi Deborah. I’m so glad you enjoyed your vacation — and that you shared the photos with us. How gorgeous! The colors were breathtaking, but the one with the geese is awe-inspiring.
    I liked your old theme just fine, but this one is good too. I get so captivated by your images, it’s hard to remember if I liked the old one more or less than this one. LOL. That’s truth, but it’s also meant as a compliment. Hugs on the wing.

  2. Looks like you hit it just right … beauties! ‘Peak’ is kind of elusive. It can look perfect on one side of the road and pre or post peak on the other. It all went by way too fast for me … especially with some other obligations.

    1. Thank you so much, Denise! It was a lovely time to be there. I wish there were more pullouts on the main road in Rocky Mt. NP there was a spot with gorgeous colors and no where to pull out!

      It went by fast here too. The early cold snap and snow zapped the color and vibrancy from a lot of our Aspens and Cottonwoods. Thankfully, there are pockets of colors though.

  3. A beautiful time of year for you Deborah, love the contrast of the golden leaves against the blue sky. Wow that’s cold ! our 23°C is a nice room temp though we are experiencing week of cold wet windy Spring weather which is unusual after several very warm days. I also loved the reflections on the lake photo, an idyllic place to be.

  4. My heart is happy, Deborah. Thanks for the morning happiness injection. It was 45 when I went out to walk before dawn and although the days are going to be in the 80’s for the high most of the next week or so, the lows are going to be in the 50’s or lower, which is right up my alley! 🙂

  5. The pictures look very good, Deborah. I like the fall colors, especially the ones reflected in the lake. The photo of the geese is amazing. I really like that
