Fall in the High Country

We might have taken a drive to see if we could find a place to hike... that had color! I LOVE fall in Colorado.. and I love hiking so you know....

I found it!!


are those yellows not amazing??  God sure has an amazing sense of Color




( above) My Dad asked if this was a fixer upper?  ha ha!
I think the mice might have already moved in




I couldn't believe how many old building there were - I wish I knew the story behind them
Below - I could see this as an early ranchers cabin



The colors were just beautiful - and!! I wore a sweatshirt!! That was the best I think - It was 50deg, and got colder as the evening came on.

Wish you knew where the road went?



And just a little below where we hiked
The colors just disappeared
and it reminded me of summer still



Our country is just one of the prettiest isn't it?  Happy Stitching!!

Wow! Gorgeous colors of fall. Here in Kentucky we are just starting to see a bit of color, but not as beautiful as this. Thanks for linking up today and I hope to see you back again. Have a great weekend.

Oh I love the colors in the trees! What a fabulous place to spend time at the end of summer! And I would love to know the stories behind the old buildings and houses. Someone's dream....!

The colors are absolutely gorgeous. I am originally from New England. I love living in Arizona but every now and then I really do miss the fall colors. Even if we went up to the mountains here, it is not the same. Your pictures are fantastic. Keep them coming!

I haven't been in the mountains at all in a couple years, so your pictures you post of your adventures is a real treat for me!

Beautiful colors in those photos. Temps dropped into the high 80s this week (from mid 90s last week). I think we are slowly sneaking into fall. No pretty colors here yet, so it was nice to see that it's fall someplace.

My daughter in law and her mother visited an old family friend last summer, and brought me photos of her chicken coop that she had turned into a quilting studio.
