Nature is the art of God. ~ Thomas Browne, Religio Medici, 1635
We were not disappointed! The colors were amazing, the vistas breathtaking, and some aspen groves we came upon were so beautiful, my mind almost refused to accept them as real.
We brought down a few leaves to decorate the house. See them here. We forgot the tripod at home, and missed a great opportunity for a picture of the two of us up there. Ah well. Just another excuse to go again! :-)
I apologize that this last picture is blurry. It was dusk as we made our way down the mountain, and the yellow Aspens began to glow in the evening light. This is the only picture that captured that!
I live 10 minutes away from this. I am so blessed to live in this beautiful place -- it feeds my soul! I just need to remember -- in the midst of my busy to-do's -- to lift my eyes, count my blessings and thank the Artist again. :-)
I hope you are enjoying your October where you are.
