I will have to be content with showing you pictures we took last week of the Alpine Loop. The mountains are just 10 minutes away from my house, and the Alpine Loop is a route you can take through these mountains (up, up, around and through -- hmmm, that sounds like Sesame Street, LOL). When we drive it, it starts up in the northern part of our county and comes out about an hour later at the Sundance Resort. The views all along the way are spectacular. In the fall, you can add *amazing* autumn color to the list! IMHO, the color rivals what they've got out east.
The colors are just starting to turn. A promise of things to come in just another week or so. Maybe we'll go up again then. In the meantime, I'm enjoying a perfectly timed fall storm blustering through this morning. I'm off to make a cup of cocoa... :-)
