The Hills Are Alive With .... Fire!

Well, not really (thank goodness) ... but the golden yellow and burnt orange aspen leaves look like flames against the rich green of the pine trees.
It's just stunning this time of year!
Here are a couple pictures of the seasons changing up here in the mountains of Colorado.
I love autumn!


  1. How pretty! We just passed through Colorado over Labor Day weekend and everything was still green. What a difference a few weeks makes!

    1. A few weeks really does make a big difference here. Even a few hours can change the weather dramatically in Colorado! The leaves dont stay golden for very long, only a few weeks tops.
      If you ever get the change to be here in late September/early October, it is just gorgeous up in the mountains. Especially the higher elevations because the Aspen trees really have that bright color.
      Thanks for stopping by :D

  2. Beautiful! I have always wanted to visit Colorado. What a grandeur and dreamy place :)


I love your comments, they make my day!!! :-D
I will try to reply to each and everyone of them either here or on your blog, but if I get caught up and dont get a chance to reply, rest assured, I read every single one of them and they always make me smile!
